Serendipity Nov Blog Hop #2!

Happy Thanksgiving & welcome to the Nov #2 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps
Don’t you love this Candy Jar? Wonderful image & so fun to color. After stamping, coloring & die cutting, I added foam layer to pop it up before attaching to the red layer. I found some peppermint paper in the right colors for the background & added the greeting on a stitched circle die cut. I colored & fussy cut some holly (from Bells w/ Holly) to go behind the circle.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

    Holy cow, your copic skills are amazing! Those candy canes look good enough to eat!

  15. Stunning card! Your peppermint sticks have so much dimension – looks like you could just pluck one up and have a sweet taste. I love the look of peppermint candies for holiday cards and you nailed it!

  16. WOW! Julie, this card is marvelous! I love the coloring of the candy canes; they look so real. It takes skill to color glass, and you did it wonderfully. The patterned paper is magnificent as well. GREAT Christmas card, Julie! Hugs!
