Candy Cane Duo
I consider myself a "brights" girl when it comes to selecting colors to stamp with (Stampin' Up! has 4 color collections: brights, regals, subtles, and neutrals). Most of the year the brights are my go to group of colors, they just make me happy. Now that it is Fall and Christmas is coming, I am loving all of the color combos lately, and find that the regals mixed with neutrals are some of my new favorites. My card here was made with Sahara Sand and Cherry Cobbler, the current combo of colors at Dynamic Duos. I also combined those colors with the layout at Mojo Monday.
I textured my background with the Chevron embossing folder and then added a strip of paper from the Be of Good Cheer DSP pack. I stamped the candy canes from the Scentsational Seasons stamp set and cut them with the coordinating framelits. My greeting comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped on crumb cake card stock then layered on cherry cobbler that I punched with the scallop edge punch before layering it on some white card stock (so that the cherry layer would stand out from the dsp paper). I tied those layers together with some Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon and added them to my card base. Thanks to the fun blogs for the color and layout inspiration! 35 days until Christmas!
