It is never too early to begin making Christmas cards. Today’s project uses the Mistletoe Magic Bundle for a soft and sweet card.
Stamps and Technique
The softness of the mistletoe is a wonderful, and different, look to this stamp set. The Mistletoe Magic Bundle is great with fun sentiments and great detail to the stamps and dies. This Real Red bow is from the Die set and has amazing details. It really pops and makes you look at the mistletoe as well.
A surprising find was to stamp the image using Shaded Spruce Ink on Evening Evergreen instead of Evening Evergreen Ink. It made the image stand out more. The White touches were done using an old and fairly dry Blender Pen with the White Craft Ink. Simply touch the tip of the Blender Pen to the ink pad and color. This technique allows you to play with it and get as much, or as little, of the white color as you want.
DSP and Sentiment
This beautiful Designer Series Paper is from the Boughs of Holly pack. These are mostly bright papers and this one really jumped out at me. The pop of the red berries made it a quick favorite. And those softer colors give me ideas for various colors of cards in the future!
The sentiment is short and sweet. But it is also a favorite as Christmas is a time of Cheer! It is from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set. And the layer it is on is a die from the All That Dies from the He’s All That Bundle. Using an oval is a bit different and fits the shape of the wording perfectly. Plus finding a second use for a die is a winner in my book.
