This is a vision in pink!! For the background I used some mulberry paper - love the texture at the edges. The doily is from my local supermarket, I sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer in Golden Mint and Silver to give shimmer and colour. Next I stamped the candy canes in Versamark and embossed with silver powder. I did several sets as I wanted extra canes. I used distress inks and my aquapen to paint the canes, adding glitter to some. I used the medium Labels 20 die to cut dark pink and vellum layers. I used Stazon on to stamp the jar onto the vellum (much clearer impression) and also on to the acetate. I attached the candy canes to the label. Next, using a sharp scalpel, I cut along the jar side outline on the label base and inserted the acetate jar. Next I stamped the sentiment onto a small vellum label and attached it to the card. I finished off the front with a candy cane, brad and tag.
This card completes all twelve cards for the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge. I fell behind a bit, but caught up at the end. Lynn - thanks so much for organising the challenge - it's been such fun.
We've had a super time with my in-laws, the time has flown by, and today we head south to Hampshire to spend a few days with my Mum and her family. If you're travelling - take care. See you soon.
