Mistletoe Kisses xx

Morning all
How are we out there in blogland?? I'm still bit under the weather but made it into my craft room to get something crafty made for my Clare Curd Design Team post


A great wee set of last minute Christmas cards using some adds and ends from different paper packs and using my trusty Silhouette Cameo for the frames and mistletoe. If your really good with a craft knife you could do the frame yourself but here's how I done it


Firstly on my Silhouette program I made a 4x4 square with the text on it so when it was cut the text would leave a space. I also added my mistletoe shape to one side that I cut


I next removed the white text and stuck the white panel onto some red paper from my Basic Grey Hey Boy pad and used some of the green to cut the mistletoe from the Hey Boy pad as well



I've kept the text for another card, us crafters throw nothing away!


Next I covered the back of the red panel with foam pads and stuck it down on to a card blank, making sure it was certain and leaving a white border all around the red


Taking the mistletoe leaves just one large and 2 small, I embossed the back to give them some shape


before adding foam pads to the leaves and glue to the stems


the sticking to the card, in the middle just at the top of the white panel


Next I took some of my Card Candi and stuck it down to form the start of my mistletoe.


The folding another Card Candi in half with the pattern to the inside I stuck it on top of the other piece already on the card.
To finish I added a piece of red satin ribbon and thats it!



I also used some of the lighter green paper from the Hey Girl Basic Grey pad to form the lighter mistletoe steams! I think both are very festive!


Well thats all for me! Till next time everyone
TTFN
