Candy Cane Ants


Hi everyone! I'm back again with another cute christmas card. I just love these ants, they look like they are having the sweetest time!!! The image used on today's card is from the Candy Cane Ants digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry. Speaking of the Doodle Pantry, did I mention that the design team is on vacation this month and Doode Pantry is having a SALE... that's right... 30% off all digital products. Woot woot!!! Check it out HERE!
  

Today's card base is Cranberry Crisp layered with White Cardstock then Mantle Patterned Paper stitched around the edge.  The shadow layer is Mellow Moss.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I stitched around the edges then wrapped white lace around the card base.  To embellish the card I added two paper flowers arranged with an oak leaf and pine branches punched from Mellow Moss cardstock and finished off with a large clear jem.  I also added a small clear jem in the corners of the image.

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