Happy Holidays card

I love it when I unexpectedly find something I can use for my crafting stash. I got my husband a wedding anniversary present last week and the package came wrapped with some red baker's twine. I instantly put it by my craft desk because I knew I could use it on a card or layout. The I saw this week's sketch at Merry Monday and knew exactly what I could use the twine for!

 


Here is my card.


The twine reminds me of candy canes, one of my favourite things about Christmas! I even had a candy cane hot chocolate when I was making this card. The trees are from a new stamp set I just received last week, and I was excited to use up some Christmas paper scraps I had found during the weekend.

I like this card the most out of all the Merry Monday challenges I have done so far, this one will be put away for an extra special person!

Supplies used:

Creative Memories: Primary Christmas Kit, White cardstock, 12" Rotary Trimmer with Straight and Scoring Blades, Foam Squares.

Stampin' Up: Merry Messages Stamp Set, Merry Minis Stamp Set, Crumb Cake cardstock, Framelits Labels Collection, Garden Green ink, Cherry Cobbler ink.

Other: Red Baker's Twine, Cuttlebug.
