Good morning! Welcome to the November Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays” and I am sharing a Christmas card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Lights Aglow specialty designer series paper to a Cherry Cobbler mat with liquid glue and adhered the panel to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Cherry Cobbler card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the label die from the Potted Succulents dies.
I cut a Pear Pizzazz panel with the mistletoe sprig die from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle. I cut several of the berry dies from white glimmer paper using the larger berry dies twice and smallest berry die once. I adhered the berries to the mistletoe sprig with liquid glue (I had several berries left over). There are spots on the sprig die cut where the berries go, and it’s pretty easy to tell.
I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and adhered the layered mistletoe sprig on top with glue dots. I colored a length of linen thread with the dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend and made a bow. I adhered the bow to the sprig with a rolled up glue dot and finished the label with an iridescent pearl.
For the inside of the card, I stamped little mistletoe sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored the leaves and stem with the light Old Olive Stampin’ blend and the color lifter. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Lights Aglow specialty DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic bundle is a sweet and simple bundle with pretty images and dies and wonderful Christmas sentiments. The die cut mistletoe sprig came together easily and is really impressive with the white glimmer paper berries.
