Sweetest Christmas Wishes

I'm popping in to post a card for another of the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party challenges, this time to use an older Christmas set.  The DT used Candy Jar Christmas, which I do have (and also haven't used yet), so I pulled it out to make this card.

I stamped the candy canes with black ink, colored in sections with a red marker, and then used a glue pen to add sparkly red glitter.  I hand cut the candy canes, completely forgetting that I had the dies!  {smack forehead}  I remembered when I considered using the jar image and pulled out the matching dies.  Ooops!  I did use a die for the bow.  :)

After stamping, I colored the bow with Copic markers to add shading and then coated it in glitter.  Love the sparkle!  I stamped a Vintage Labels 4 image on another diecut in Hawaiian Shores ink, and then the sentiment in Pure Poppy ink.  I love how the bow fits nicely around the sentiment.

I embossed the Hawaiian Shores panel with a Decorative Dots folder from Stampin' Up.  It almost looks like falling snow.  I glued it to a white card base and then added the layered candy cane piece.  It makes a very sweet Christmas card!  (pun intended)  :)
