Candy Cane Wishes

On one of my card swapping groups, the tech challenge was a Double Flap Fold card.  Today I'm sharing the card I made for that challenge using Di's Digital Designs, Candystar Ted.

 I just purchased this image from Di's Digital Designs during her current sale when I signed up for the Tech Challenge.  They always give us a Youtube link, which I'll list below for your reference also.   I thought this cutie would be perfect as a stand alone image on the Double Flap Fold card.  

I followed the video and made the fancy fold card, thinking I should do these more often!  I knew I'd be using red on the image coloring so I selected the red dotted swiss patterned paper for the base.  

After measuring the space available for the image, I sized it and then printed it on 110# Neenah cardstock.  I used Copic marker for coloring and then carefully cut the completed image out.  After adding the dark edge to the cutout then I simply secured it to the front of the card.  If you look too closely I actually should have sized it a little smaller, but it's fine.  Also I would have normally added a sentiment but the example we were given to follow didn't have anything other than the image so I left it as is.  Super cute! 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
