Here is my card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge! Patterned Paper! The challenge is to use patterned paper as an element on the project to highlight it in some way. I used the super cute Candy Cane Christmas paper for this card, along with Blushing Bride, Real Red, and Whisper White cardstock. I used Real Red ink for the sentiment and to edge the candy cane and background paper. I used buttons from the Brights and Subtles collections.

I bet you are wondering how I made that candy cane? Easy! I had a candy cane shaped cookie cutter that i just traced onto the paper, then cut out! You can totally do that! just think of it...stars, angels,.....gingerbread men!

Ok, so now it's your turn! Get out that patterned paper (and if you are anything like me, you have HUNDREDS to choose from!) and start creating!

I would love to see what you make, so go to Stampin' Royalty and show us your patterned paper project!

Love this cany cane. Where did you get such a perfect shape?

Hi Marlene! I used a cookie cutter to trace onto the patterned paper then cut it out, and just inked around the edges (helps hide all the imperfections!)
the great thing about that is, you can use any shape of cookie cutter you can find!
