Merry Mistletoe

Hi everyone.  I'm playing along with this week's Merry Monday (#249).  My friend Colleen is hosting and she chose Mistletoe for this week's challenge.


This is my one and only mistletoe stamp. :)  I stamped it twice and heat embossed in white.  Then I sponged with Broken China DOX inks.  I sprayed a little water and blotted to create a bit of visual texture to the background.  I die-cut into a circle and then coloured the leaves with a green zig brush.  I added some Dazzling Details glitter glue over the leaves, half pearls for the berries, and two small bows from silver cording.  The circle is popped up to give the card a bit of dimension.

Here's a close up:



A simple card that seemed to take forever to come together.  It happens sometimes. :)

Thanks for the fun challenge Colleen!  The challenge is open until Sunday, so there's still lots of time to play along.

And I'm playing along again this month at Rudolph Days, run by the lovely Maureen (Scraps of Life by Scrappymo!)!  Two months in a row ... maybe it will become a habit.  I hope so! :)

Thanks for coming by for a visit!

  3. This is such a wonderful design, Loll! Love the soft pastel background. Your holly leaves are just beautiful with that glitter. Love this idea. It looks particularly great with the white embossing.
