Under The Mistletoe

Hello, Lynda Joy here, with a quick holiday card.  I used the Mistletoe #SD745 stamp to create my card today.

I placed the Mistletoe stamp into my Misti, along with a soft green card stock panel.  I 'inked' the stamp with Arteza real brush markers in different shades of green, and stamped it onto the card stock.  I added more color to different areas, and repeated until I had achieved the desired look and intensity.  This is one of my favorite techniques with my Misti.

I used a gold gel pen over the ribbon, and white colored pencils for the berries.

I gold embossed the word 'mistletoe' and cut it out, layering it and adding it with foam tape for an interesting element.

A gold die cut frame outlines the composition, and layers build up more interest to the card front.  I ran the white pencil along the outside of the gold frame for a little extra umph.

Inside, I stamped the image with green, white, and gold inks.  I used a gold gel pen to draw the rectangular area for a personal note.

That's it....keeping it simple, yet elegant.   I hope you like my card, and have found some inspiration for your holiday card making.
