Candy Canes Christmas

This week's challenge at
is to pick a previous sketch.

I chose this sketch from February 2013.

The candy cane stamp I used was a post Christmas,
in the clearance bin purchase at Michael's at the end of last year.
I paid a whole $0.50 for it!
Anyway, I stamped with versa mark and then heat embossed
with red embossing tinsel, colored the bows with
a silver paint pen and fussy cut.
I applied them to the turned squares which were die cut
with Sizzix framelits.
The greeting is from a Hero Arts
Christmas Greetings stamp set.
The snowflake embossing folder I used for the background
is from Darice.
This is Christmas card #36 for this year so far!
