Patchwork Candy Cane Christmas

This non-traditional color patchwork Christmas card was simple to make, and looks even prettier in real life.  One and 1/4 inch squares are glued onto a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of any color card stock.  Then it is run through the Big Shot using the Top Note die. 

The red sparkle on the Candy Cane Christmas Specialty paper adds just enough pizazz.  A little red glimmer brad matches the polka dot paper perfectly.  The baja breeze base of the card embossed with the square lattice embossing folder makes it look like the patchwork is on fabric.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set.
