Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Candy Cane


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor, Avery Elle, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Candy Cane!  A randomly selected participant in the Candy Cane challenge will receive a $20 Avery Elle gift certificate, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I wanted to try and combine this challenge with the current AEI♥U Challenge using "Inlaid Diecuts".  I pulled the colors from the candy canes for my background by using pattern paper.  After stamping and diecutting all my pieces from the Winter Wreath stamp set/dies, I simply pieced them all back in like a puzzle.  This card is what I would call an "almost one-layer card".  I refrained from mounting my diecut panel with foam adhesive....yeah I know, I have issues.  The only dimension this card has is that the berries are coated with Glossy Accents.  :)


Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
