Today's theme is all about the Candy Cane.  I designed and created this Christmas card using a real candy cane:)

This card was purposely made this card a bit bigger so that it could sit on our dining room table next to a center piece I made.  I have no intentions of sending it in the mail so I wasn't worried about its size and having to fit it into an envelope.  It is a 6" x 6" square card.  The blue card stock was cut from the Sophie Cricut cartridge.  Instead of using it for its intended use, it was cut out using the blackout feature and all the fine details were left out.

I love using blue with red for Christmas cards.  I don't think there are any rules that say you have to use green.  What do you think?  I like the way these two colors look together.
