Double D - Candy Cane


 Dear Ones~
The theme this time over at Double D is Candy Canes. How FUN!! Who doesn't love a candy cane?  Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:
And here's my card:
Candy Canes are not something I use every day on my cards. I had to search for even a die that I could use. I finally found this image in a coffee cup die set. That background is a new Tim Holtz die set and it's simply fabulous. It comes in two pieces and I chose to die cut both with white. 
I love the texture!!
The Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stock
Tim Holtz Layered Plaid Die Set
Spellbinders Pinked Circle Die 
SU Layered Circles Die
GKD Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
SU Poinsettia Dies
SU Teeny Tiny Wishes for Greeting
