Creating Our 2013 Handmade Christmas Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you our 2013 Christmas Card.  I had so many ideas (does that surprise you – LOL) but I was really running out of time so I had to decide quick.

So with all of these supplies, I wanted a card that was not too complicated, but still looked good.  This year I think I have eaten more candy canes then ever before and not the peppermint ones either.  I bought raspberry ones that are yummy!  So it is appropriate that our card this year would be a candy cane.


I stamped the image with tuxedo black memento ink, and colored with Copic sketch markers and Prismacolor markers.  Then added some Stickles onto the bow for that extra “bling”.

This is what the card started to look like.  I found the story “Legend of the Candy Cane” online and printed it out on the same vanilla cardstock that I stamped the images on.  Then using red cardstock cut 3 panels and using the Martha Stewart border punch, I punched the top and bottom.


With each panel complete the final Christmas card looks pretty good.



Well now that I have them finally done, I need to get them out in the mail.  Thank goodness there are 12 days of Christmas 🙂

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time to Craft!
