Washi Christmas Tree – 12 Weeks of Christmas Project 10

First of all, this adorable Washi Christmas Tree was created with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and the Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape.  It probably catches your eye because it’s such a simple yet creative card.  Just another example that our Washi Tape is so decorative  that you can use it to stand on it’s own.

Candy Cane Season

To me the holidays are also Candy Cane Season.  You can walk almost anywhere and always see a candy cane.  If you don’t see the actual candy, you see the pattern everywhere you go.  So this season, close your eyes and watch the candy canes dance in your heads.  I love this card because it is the essence of Christmas with all the colors and patterns.
