Quick and Easy Candy Cane Card with digi stamp

ETA (12/12/16) I was very excited this morning to see that my card was chosen as the weekly winner this week for Merry Monday's Candy Cane challenge! Thank you so much!



I have to admit that I thought I would be all done with my Christmas crafting by now.  I participate in more than one Christmas card making challenge throughout the year so that I don't have to rush around in December. HOWEVER, when I counted my cards, I was short about 10 (note to self: count the cards earlier!) so I will be sharing more Christmas cards. I hope you aren't sick of them.


This was a digi stamp that was easy to color once I decided what should be white and what should be colored in the candy canes.


I added Wink of Stella to the ribbon.  Easy peasy was my plan for the rest of the card.  I did hand stamp the sentiment on the inside, but it didn't merit taking a photo.


Supplies: Power Poppy Candy Cane digi, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, American Crafts Let it Snow 6x6 paper pad, Spellbinders Labels Four dies, gems from my stash

I would love to participate in the following challenge:
Cards in Envy - Wouldn't that be Sweet
Merry Monday - Candy Canes

Thanks for coming by!  I appreciate your visit so much!

Great colors and I like that you didn't stick to just red and white for the candy canes. I found I was about 10 cards shorts myself. Plus I like to have a few others around because you never know when you'll need a spare.

I think these candy canes are lovely - the colours are just super! I was short on my cards too - but getting there!

I like the colors of your candy canes and it seems you can buy them these days in such a variety of colors and flavors. I make cards all year round and it always seems I need to make my "special ones" last minute so I hear you since we are like Santa's elves....never done, hehe. Just remember to breathe and enjoy the season.
