I had so much fun making this for Classy Cards 'n Such: Candy Cane inspired challenge. Sometimes I take such challenges literally - it's just easier that way. Haha!
I think the new Impression Obsession Christmas Icons are just the cutest little dies and are just so versatile. Here I arranged the candy canes cut from red card stock into a circular shape on top of some card stock I ran through with a Tim Holtz holly embossing folder. Then I added the little Christmas tree at the center. Everything looks better framed right? This is no exception. Here I made a nice wide frame using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and popped it up with small Joy! foam pads. My sentiment from Verve is embossed with silver detail embossing powder.
Isn't that little tree just adorable? I die-cut it eight times, stacked them up, and centered it within my candy cane swirl. I then die-cut it out of the gold and silver SB Precious Metals Craft Foil and used the negative die cuts to fill in the garland and ornaments. It's such a tiny bit but it packs a big punch, don't you think?
Thank you so much for looking and hope you get a chance to play along!
