Candy Cane Christmas

I owe thanks to two fellow demos for this post: The card was designed by Kirstin Randazzo, the coaster by Lisa Cool. I thought they made a perfect pair!

To make the card, we embossed a standard-sized Baja Breeze base with the Northern Flurry folder, then grouped a series of assorted size circle punches (from the Candy Cane Christmas DSP) and a bird stamped with the Punch Potpourri hostess set. Several of the circles are popped up on dimensionals for interest.

The coasters are a cinch to make! Can't you imagine a set of four using those coordinating fabrics? We just placed a layer of Candy Cane Christmas fabric, a layer of quilt batting, and another layer of fabric together on the Scallop Square die, and ran it through the Big Shot all at the same time! Just 4-5 stitches (like a tied quilt), a Big Designer Button and a snowflake cut from felt (the Northern Frost decorative strip die is perfect), and you're done.

Great gift idea for a neighbor or office mate, don't you think?! -Kathy
