Howdy y'all! I just got back from seeing my niece sing in her Christmas concert, and she was awesome! :-) Tonight I'm sharing this adorable Candy Cane Train with you. I used the following items from Classy Cards 'n Such on this card:
Candy Cane Train stamp (Stampavie)
Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pad (Simple Stories)
Chalk White seam binding
Holly Leaves die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Lace Corner Deco J die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
I started by stamping the Candy Cane Train on white cardstock and I colored it with Copic markers. I sponged a little bit of Antique Linen distress ink on the bottom to "ground" the train. Look at the wheels - see the Gunmetal Pearls in the centers? Isn't that cute?
My card base is black cardstock and I added a layer of red plaid paper from the Handmade Holiday paper pad. A smaller strip of multicolored plaid paper from the same paper pad was added to the left side and then I tied some seam binding around the lower part of the card. The black lattice corner was die cut from the Lace Corner Deco J set and added to the top right corner.
The Candy Cane Train was matted with a black cardstock layer and then glued down onto the card. The last thing I did was die cut a couple of holly leaves and glued them to the top right corner with a bright red button in the center.
I colored this train to coordinate with the colors in the papers I was using. Think about all the fun possibilities that you could do with this adorable stamp. What about a pink train? Or perhaps a white/blue/silver combo? You could go with traditional bright red and green or go crazy with pink and purple!
You still have time to go shopping and buy this stamp at Classy Cards 'n Such. Or better yet, stock up on several of the holiday Stampavie stamps and start working on your cards for next year. :-) As always, you can save 10% off your order by using this code, Holly-10, when you check out at Classy Cards 'n Such.
