Candy Cane Christmas

Santa in the stamp set, Jolly Old Saint Nick reminds me of the large plastic Santa that my mom hung on our front door every year when I was growing up.   Mom's Santa was even winking!  I wonder what happened to that Santa, he probably got so old that he warped and cracked beyond use after I grew up and moved away.

This card also features the Candy Cane Christmas Designer paper.  I don't know who made the card, it was one of the swaps I got at the Fall Retreat and she didn't put her name on the back.  It is a very nice clean and simple card.  You can't tell in the picture but there is a nice sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds on his hat band, eyebrows and beard.  It is the perfect touch to finish off the card.
The second picture has 2 of the projects we made at the retreat.  Candy Cane Christmas paper was also used in these projects.  It is a great color combination for Christmas although the Baja Breeze and Blushing Bride are not traditional Christmas colors.   The snowman from the Tags till Christmas set and the huge button is from the Candy Cane Big Designer Buttons pack.  I love the scalloped top on our new Mini Lunch Sacks, cute little 3-1/2"X2 1/4"X6-5/8" size is perfect for gift giving or treats. 

The sweet little box is from the Bitty Box and Envelope die and is cut from Blushing Bride card stock and decorated with Candy Cane Christmas DSP and a punched stamp also from the Tags till Chrismas set.  Did you notice the Glimmer Brad in the center of the ornament?  They come in 4 different color sets and are a great way to add some sparkle and class to your holiday projects!
