Papertrey Ink Merry Kiss-mas mistletoe Christmas card





Hello everyone, and I hope you are enjoying a good weekend. The 25th of the month always means the Papertrey Ink blog hop

and this time we were given this inspiration photo

Blog Hop

I came up with this Christmas card, taking inspiration from the black and white colours, the twine and the green sprigs.


I began by cutting and stamping 2 sprigs of mistletoe using the Merry Kiss-mas stamp and die set. I gently shaped the leaves and used Nuvo drops on the berries. Then I layered up some black and white card and stamped and embossed one of the sentiments from the Bells and Boughs stamp set.



I tied some twine around the panel before adhering it to the base card, and then arranged the mistletoe down the centre of the card. I thought I was done but the right top corner needed something to balance everything, so I selectively inked and stamped the airmail envelope stamp from SSS Envelope Sentiments.

I always enjoy seeing how other people interpret the inspiration photo, so I'm going to settle down later and hop to my hearts content!


I'd like to play along with





Thanks for stopping by.
