Candy Cane Bear Christmas Card

July is almost over and I wanted to make at least one Christmas card for all the Christmas in July challenges. I decided to rescue an image that I printed too large last year. This cute Candy Cane Bear image is by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I colored the image with my Copic markers. I sacrificed a big portion of the worded patterned paper to make the candy cane words fit just right at the bottom of the card. Then I decided to add a strip of blue polka dot paper to add some color. The Candy Cane paper is from The Paper Studio and the Happy Holidays sentiment is by Stampabilities. The cardstock colors are Crumb Cake and Real Red by Stampin' Up!. I added a little sparkle red circle with a sparkle white brad next to the sentiment to add some detail. That's about it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My Candy Cane Bear Christmas Card is entered into the following challenges:

  7. The fact that we will be putting Christmas decorations out in 4 months is why that cute little bear is sliding down the candy cane! Time gets away too fast -- and this is a very cute card.
