ODBDSLC265 Christmas Greetings

The Christmas rush is on at my house as we decorate the house, make Christmas cards and make Christmas Ornaments.  We have a wonderful color challenge today and I hope all of you will play along!  These colors could be used on a Christmas or non Christmas project.
I decided to pull out an old favorite and make a Christmas card with the Blue Ribbon Winner and Canning Jar Fillers stamp sets. I love these sets because they are so versatile and I reach for them often. I began by stamping the jar on acetate with black Stazon ink. When that was dry, I used alcohol markers on the back of the acetate to color the jar. I then stamped the candy canes on white paper and colored the stripes a bit more with red markers to add some shading. I die cut it with the corresponding jar die and colored the top of the jar with silver ink. When the acetate is placed on top, it adds depth with the silver being behind the plastic.
A bit of Silver cording, a sentiment and some greens tops of the jar quite nicely.  I added foam tape to the back and placed the jar on several rectangles that were cut using the new Rectangle and Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added a bit of blingy trim, did some embossing and added a border with a bow.

Oh your border and bow look so good. At first I thought it was real not paper! Love your rhinestone all the way around your image too! What a cute idea to have a mason jar full of candy canes too! So pretty!

Wow, this is amazing! Love all of the candy canes in your mason jar and the silver cord, rhinestone trim as well as all of the new stitched dies are the perfect accents to your candy cane jar :-) Hugs and have a blessed week, my friend!!

I love the candy canes in the candy jar, Paula. So "sweet"!! The rhinestones add such sparkle and texture to it. Beautiful use of the colors my friend.
