Sweetest Wishes for the Happiest of Holidays - Candy Canes

Sweetest Wishes for the Happiest of Holidays - Candy Canes
Making another Christmas card for the coming holiday. I hope I have at least five (5) Christmas cards in my stash by mid November 2015.

Viva la Verve Sketches - October Week 3 Sketch
For this card, I am adopting Viva la Verve Sketches - October Week 3 Sketch as shown above. It is also inspired by Cute Cards Thursday Challenge 395 - Candy! whereby I will use candy cane.

Close-up: Candy canes
The candy cane is randomly stamped on a white stitched journal card whereby I masked the outer side and also the bottom for the sentiment. The outer side of the stitched journal card is outlined using Copic marker to give some focuses.

Close-up: Sentiment and fish tailed hanging banners
For the sentiment, another red stitched journal card is die cut and trimmed for the bottom as required size. The sentiment is stamped onto it and later layer onto the candy cane stitched journal card. Some blue fish tailed banners are attached to the bottom of the stitched journal card as shown in sketch. The stitched journal card is attached onto a light green card base using slightly smaller than the stitched journal card size foam and double sized tape.

Close-up: Holly ivy on the mini doily
Two (2) holly leaves are stamped onto a small white circle and colored using Copic markers. Three (3) red gems are used as ivy. Some faux stitching are added to the circle. The circle is layer onto a green mini doily using foam tape. The mini doily is attached onto the card as in sketch.

Close-up: Glitters on the candy canes and holly leaves
The card is finished off by applying some glitter onto the candy canes and holly leaves to give it some sparkles.
