This is my first Christmas card creation of the “season” with the fabulous “Mistletoe Magic” bundle! The stamp set and dies can be found on p. 15 of the July-December Mini Catalog.

I chose to use soft colors for this card using Pool Party, White and a “pop” of Real Red. Two panels were die cut with the stitched scalloped die from the “Scalloped Contours” dies. Then, I cut off the scalloped edge on the white card stock. When the white panel is mounted to the “Red” scallop mat, it appears to be “stitched” to the red piece. I used Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaroon “Blends” to color the mistletoe image. Then, I added “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” to the berries to give them some pretty “shimmer” which is always difficult to capture in a photo!

I embossed a Pool Party panel with the “Timeworn Type 3D” embossing folder. After embossing, I used a “Blending Brush” to to add Pool Party ink to the raised portions of the embossing to make it stand out a bit. This panel was adhered to the card front and then the focal panel was attached with dimensionals. I did try a “Real Red” ribbon, but felt I liked the “softness” the “Pool Party Sheer Ribbon” gave the finished card. So pleased with how this card turned out!
