Merry Monday #249 - Mistletoe

Hello friends.  Colleen is our hostess this week at Merry Monday and she would like to see some Mistletoe on your Christmas cards.


I had fun using a sweet little set I had won from Deepti and Stamplorations called Christmas Bell Medley and a embossing folder from Quickutz.



Pretty CAS, but I really liked how elegant this one turned out!  I embossed in gold the mistletoe and bow images, and then blended a little Ocean Tides and Pure Poppy inks on them with makeup sponges.  A little hard to tell in my photo, but I used Gina K's Ivory cardstock for the base layer and the embossed layer with all the Christmas words...it looks a little white to me in my photo's, but it really is a pretty cream color IRL!  I used a Lil Inkers Stitched Circle die and inlaid the Ocean Tides circle into the embossed ivory layer, and then finished up with pop dotting my bow and adding a few SU! pearls for the berries.

So dig out those Mistletoe stamps and play along with us this week...you'll be so glad when December rolls around if you keep playing with us each week!  Check out the rest of the inspiration from the DT and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
