Rudolf Candy Cane


I saw this cute image some time ago on my friend Jan's blog and immediately had to head over to Bugaboo Stamps and download the entire Rudulf collection.  The image I used on today's card is the Rudolf Candy Cane image.  Isn't Rudolf just adorable, makes me want to kiss his bright red nose and give him a big hug!!!


My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with PTI White then Fairland Street and Forest Street patterned paper.  I stitched around the edges then wrapped some brown satin ribbon along the seam and tied a bow in front.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges of the image then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Chocolate Chip.  To embellish the card I added two large green buttons threaded with DMC White.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
