I have a Candy Cane card for you today in non-traditional colors.  I used some beautiful designer series paper and created a color wash on watercolor paper for the background of today's card.

The beautiful Blushing Bride card front is made with the Brushstrokes Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Have you noticed this 12" x 12" paper in the Annual Catalog?  It is absolutely gorgeous, but I think until you see it in person you make pass right over it.  At least that is what my stampers told me when I used it in a recent in-person Technique Class.  The collection includes three colors, Blushing Bride, Soft Succulent and Night of Navy, and it truly is beautiful!

I used the Deckled Rectangle Dies to die cut both the Mossy Meadow DSP from Boughs of Holly and the Watercolor Paper.  Water Painters were used to create a quick and easy color wash background in Sweet Sorbet, Blushing Bride, and Calypso Coral.  This created a nice backdrop for the three candy canes.

From left to right the candy canes are Calypso Coral stamped on Basic White (that one must be Tangerine Flavor), White embossing on Mossy Meadow Boughs of Holly DSP (I think that is Spearmint Flavor), and Sweet Sorbet on Blushing Bride Brushstrokes DSP (Cherry? Strawberry? -- you choose).

The sentiment from Brightest Glow stamp set was die cut with a Labels Aglow die.  A few twists of silver cord from Simply Elegant Trim and some Evening Evergreen Mistletoe tucked behind the sentiment finishes the card front.

To stay in keeping with the Deckled Rectangle theme on the card front, I also die cut the mats for the inside of the card with the Deckled Rectangles dies.  A strip of the Blushing Bride Brushstrokes DSP and the Boughs of Holly Mossy Meadow DSP finishes the inside decoration.
