May Rudolph Days

Hi everyone.  It's the 25th of the month, which means Rudolph Days Challenge is open.

I've created a quick and easy card using an AliExpress mistletoe and berries die-cut smooshed with green and blue magicals (the green took over and blue doesn't show much once dry).  Added pearl paint to the berries so they shine.  Stamped the sentiment in red before mounting the mistle toe to the card front.

Close-up ...
Thanks to Maureen for running this fun challenge.  It helps keep my stash of Christmas cards growing throughout the year!

Update:  Had a few inquiries about the Christmas Greetings stamp.  It is from an older, wood mounted set by Tim Holtz, which I unmounted so able to use in my Misti.  Click HERE for a link

So pretty. Love the simplicity and the shimmer. The green sure did take over, but the hints of blue gives it variation and looks fabulous.

Beautiful card! I'm in awe of your work :)
I love that simple sentiment. Is it a new Tim stamp? I'm having trouble locating it.
Thanks

Beautiful mistletoe, my friend! Love the soft green with the red greeting! That's a great sentiment stamp!

Leslie Miller said...

Wow! Loving the look of those leaves, and I do see some of the blue in there. Amazing shine from the silver paint. The sentiment deserves its own WOW! Naturally I immediately wondered where you got it, even though I'm on a buying hold right now. I've bought some dies from a friend's collection, but that's it for me. I don't know how long I can hold out!

That's such a pretty die and I like the mix of colours. The shimmer from the berries is so pretty and I love the pop of red for the sentiment.

Your mistletoe is so soft and fluid, Loll. Real enough to pick. And I am enthralled with the sentiment fonts.

This mistletoe branch is gorgeous Loll and love the red greeting which goes perfectly. The mix of green and blue magicals for the leaves and pearl paint for the berries is just so pretty. The whole thing is so elegant and fresh looking. x

A beautiful CAS christmas card, Loll! I love that you incorporated traditional colours and a lovely texture-like appearance with your ink smooshing on the leaves. And of course the shimmer of the berries adds a touch of elegance. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely christmas card with the Rudolph Days Challenge.
