Christmas Candy Canes & Greenery

I think it's safe to say that yesterday was not a very good day.  My dad fell and broke his hip, so we were back and forth to the hospital. Hoping for a quick recovery, and getting more information today on what they actually did during his surgery yesterday.

I have two holiday cards to share today, made using some pretty patterned paper and a scalloped card die. I like the size of these cards - 4-1/2" x 6".

The greeting was embossed in gold on the front, and I added red glitter glue along the winding ribbon.  Inside, I added a panel and a scalloped border to give it some stability.  The border was cut using the card die, I just added a strip over the scalloped end and ran it through my Big Shot.

For the second card, I used the same scalloped card die and pale green card stock for the base, then cut a 2nd scalloped panel from the candy cane print paper. That piece was trimmed down on three sides, then attached to the card as well as some Washi Tape and a strip of patterned paper.

Two more cards ready to send over the holidays!

Supplies used:
Scalloped Card die - Sizzix
Patterned Paper - K & Co
Inside stamp greeting - MFT
Seasons Greetings stamp - Stampin' Up
Gold embossing powder
Washi Tape fro my stash
Stickles Glitter Glue
