Joy and Candy Canes

I have the feeling that you are going to have mixed feelings for my next card.  Either you are one of those people who is on the ball and has already finished your Christmas shopping or you’re not.  If you are the first you will probably enjoy it, however if you are the second, like me, it will probably make you groan.  LOL.


Yup, it is Christmas card time!  Although this beaut is a bit more generic with a candy cane main image and a “joy” sentiment.

I’m still on a Distress Glitter kick so after die cutting a frame from chipboard and painting it with Antique Linen Distress Paint (let dry before the next step), I completely covered it with Glossy Accents and then added tons and tons of Antique Linen Distress Glitter. Oh joy! :D


Stamped a sentiment (on light blue cardstock) and the candy cane (on watercolor paper) and colored them with Distress Markers.  After adhering the cut out images I coated the joy with Glossy Accents.  Added a little ribbon, brads, and designer paper to finish the card. :D
