Scentsational Season for Queen Susan

We're still honoring past Queens at SCS.  This week we're to honor a past Queen whose screen name begins with S.  My good friend Susan (susanbri) is in that group.  Susan creates a lot of Christmas cards each year and works on them all year long.  She does other beautiful cards too, but Christmas is her specialty.  I chose this card to CASE and here's what I came up with......



This is the only candy cane stamp I have and the hook only goes one way.  It seemed that my third object needed to be something besides a left facing cane.  So I added a gingerbread man from the same set.  I kept the layout as it was and even found an already punched piece of red in the snippet bag.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Scentsational Season (retired), More Merry Messages
Ink:  Real Red, Soft Suede, SU Markers (Real Red, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  Holiday Collection Framelit Dies (retired), Scallop Trim Border Punch, Gumball Green Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Kars Snowflake EF (Cuttlebug)

Other challenges:

Festive Friday  theme challenge


Pixie's Crafty Workshop  cuz the red layer, the embossed piece and the stamped pieces are all snippets.  I love to use snippets.  And I love to visit the playground.  I always see wonderful craft projects there and the playmates are so friendly and mischievous.


Thanks for the visit.  I hope you come back again soon.

Enjoy!
