Under the Mistletoe

12/1/21 Top Pick at ABC Christmas Challenge!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I started mine off taking photos in my studio, so you know I’m having a good one! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m one of those who makes extra cards all year long, in a variety of themes, and stash them away until I need them. Oftentimes, they’ll either be used for challenges that arise or for random design team projects if I happen to change my other mind (since I typically work way ahead on DT projects), lol. I’m sharing this card in The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge where our sponsor is Twinkle Lane Designs and the challenge is to Add Buttons and/or Bows. This sprig of mistletoe is ‘tied’ together with a bow, so win-win!

I cut a mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and layering panels using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. Using black, green and two different red inks, I stamped the mistletoe, bow and sentiment (all from the STAMPlorations Layered Mistletoe stamp set) on the white cardstock layering panel. I adhered the panels together and then to the card base. I added several dots of white gloss Crystal Drops to finish the front panel.

I die cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with narrow strips of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock at the top and bottom of the panel, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on a die cut panel cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I’m in love with all of STAMPlorations’ layered stamp sets! The whimsical nature of the images is just so fun!
