Mistletoe


Here's another Christmas card using my new stamp set from SU! "Easy Events".  This is a really fun set to use.  I popped up only the middle square with dimensionals to add depth, but it's hard to tell in the photo.  Hope you like.

"Mistletoe"


Stamps:  Easy Events, Christmas Greetings (SU!)
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Real Red, Old Olive (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Green & Red glitter glue (Studio G from Michael's), Mistletoe ribbon (SU!), Ice embossing powder, heat tool, sticky strips and dimensionals

I stamped the image onto three small pieces of Whisper White cardstock.  I filled in the leaves and berries with glitter glue and left the pieces to dry overnight.

I attached a piece of Mistletoe ribbon around the two outside panels, securing it at the back.  On the middle panel, I wrapped the ribbon around and tied a knot in the center.

I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then heat embossed with "Ice".
I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture onto a card base of Old Olive, popping up the middle panel only to add depth.
