Candy Cane Basket

Hi there 🙂 It’s been a while since I’ve made a Christmas card, even though I know that leaving it all to the last minute is a very bad idea!! So I printed up this gorgeous Candy Cane Basket from Jan’s Digital Stamps, and got to work! I colored the image with my Copics, then fussy cut it out.

I placed the cut out image on a square doily die cut. I layered this, as well as some crinkle ribbon, tied into a fluffy bow, on some holly printed background paper. Some white faux stitching, done with a Posca pen, gave the edge a bit of definition. I finished the card off with a die cut sentiment that I added a few gems to for holly berries.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
