Candy Cane Charlie Card

Hello! I've made another Christmas card for a few Christmas in July challenges. Starting early really does help me get a good start on my Christmas cards and the challenges are a fun motivator. The layout for this Candy Cane Charlie Card is from day 2 of the Catch The Bug Christmas in July challenges. I used an image that was already printed in my stash, it's called Candy Cane Charlie by Bugaboo Stamps. The image was colored with Copic markers and die cut with a stitched circle die. Patterned papers were selected to coordinate with the image. The candy cane paper is by The Paper Studio, red polka dots from the Welcome Christmas paper pad by Pebbles and the gray stripe was a scrap from my bin. A piece of white glitter cardstock was cut for the banner detail. To finish off the card the Merry Christmas sentiment by Hero Arts was stamped with Memento black ink. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
