Candy Cane Bear

I have a very simple card to share today. This one uses a digital stamp from one of my favourite digi designers Dustin Pike (Doodle Dragon Studios). This guy puts out literally hundreds of images each year and his prices are unbelievable.
For this card I coloured the bear using Copic markers and then matted him on a selection of traditionally coloured papers. The largest red panel is embossed with a candy-cane stripe folder. In order to keep the card from looking too plain, and to mimic the rounding of the candy cane, I used my corner punch on the two outside edges of the card front. Like I said, super easy but I think this will be great for so many people this coming Christmas.
