Sweet Candy Canes Again
This card turned out exactly the way I pictured it in my head! That rarely happens, LOL. I wanted to have a textured background behind the Merriest Frames, but none of my embossing folders looked right, so I pulled out the Simply Scored board and went to work making lines every 1/8" with the stylus. I love the subtle corrugated look! Unfortunately, I had a hard time getting the lighting right when I was taking the pics, so you can't really see it.
I learned a trick from my upline's Facebook group. You can use clear packing tape over your stamped image before die cutting to make it shiny (similar to Crystal Effects), so I made the candy canes shiny, like they would be in real life!
Anyhoo, here it is - the masterpiece I imagined a few days ago. 😁
