I love candy canes at Christmas. During the holidays I keep them on my desk at work, I put them on the Christmas tree and we alway have extras so I’m usually still enjoying them after Christmas.
Of course I had to have the new Candy Cane background stamp available in the July – August Mini Catalog. It’s the perfect stamp for simple stamping with just ink, stamps and paper. I have found that the best way for me to get a clear image when using a background stamp is to use my Stamparatus. It allows me to stamp multiple times without fear of not lining up the image correctly. It was so easy I decided to make one with Real Red and one with Garden Green.
The sentiment I choose for these cards is from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set, with pairs perfectly with this background stamp. To dress the card up a bit I used a bit of Gold Foil Specialty paper with the sentiment layer. It was quick and easy to put these simple, cute cards together.
