Jar Purple Candy Canes Cute Xmas Card

Created this Christmas card using color purple & candy cane theme. Stamped Inkadinkado Jar once on white cardstock & again on vellum. 
Used Cricut cartridge Christmas Cheer to cut out Candy Canes (used image without stripes since I was stamping them). Had to try a couple sizes & welding positions to get the die cut image to match the stamped shape. Stamped Stamped Candy Canes. Placed the candy canes on the white cardstock jar image.  

Cut out the jar from vellum & placed over the candy canes & white cardstock jar image. Stamped the sentiment on vellum. 

Added ribbon. Used scrap piece of candy cane scrapbook paper to complement the Candy Cane theme. Embossed background with Cuttlebug Candy Stripes to complement the Candy Cane theme. Added buttons.

  1. I like this card because it is an unusual color for Christmas. I like it when I receive a card that isn't the same old same old color! I love the jar and the vellum.

  2. Fun way to get away from standard green and red for Christmas.
