So here is the more elaborate version of Teddy Candycane ............ I did actually start this one 1st but went off it as I wasn't happy with the background ....... it was still sitting in front of me as I created the other one, so it evolved as I went along.
I started the background by stamping with the Niagara Mist Versamagic and then used Versamark with clear embossing powder over the top but off set it so it shadowed the previous stamping ........... I then used my Cut-N-Dry Foam again with the Niagara Mist to blend over the top which gave me a lighter shade but you can still see the background stamping underneath and it made the clear embossing pop.
I used my Silhouette Frame Die Cut again but changed the position. The Merry Christmas Border strip is actually made using Scallop Scissors and a hole punch. All finished off with a little stitching, Grosgrain Ribbon and Foam Pads.
