Stampin up candy cane holiday card idea rubber stamps warmest of wishes mini catalog
My project for the hop is a simple holiday card that garners it's personality from the "glam-azing" candy canes. 

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  The candy canes were created using the Stampin' Up! Stocking Accents Originals Die (Holiday Mini Catalog) and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I first cut the candy canes with Red Glimmer Paper and a second time in Whisper White.  Perforated lines make it easy to snip out and adhere Whisper White stripes to the Red Glimmer cane.
