Under the Mistletoe

Today's card is for this week's Merry Monday (#102) Christmas challenge. Since the inspiration piece features mistletoe, I decided to recycle an idea from last year's cards. Anyone remember this post? I said then that I wanted to make a masculine version. Well that didn't happen obviously so that means there is yet another one in my future.

I first cut the tag using a PTI die and then attached the mistletoe cut with the C.C. Designs Mistletoe Cutters using sequins to represent the berries. The sentiment is from The Cat's Pajamas Merry Everything set and was stamped with Simon Says ink onto a sentiment strip cut with the Reverse Confetti Tag Me die set. After wrapping silver thread around it, I layered it across the bottom of the tag and added a red sequin to the top of the thread. After adhering the tag to the background panel I topped it with a paper bow cut with My Favorite Things Die-namics. I repeated the green of the mistletoe with a scalloped border and added a few more sequins. All the patterned came from the Doodlebug North Pole and Home for the Holidays pads.


Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp, Doodlebug dp, Bazzill Basics cs, Darice sequins, PTI die and cs, My Favorite Things Die-namics, Reverse Confetti die, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Simon Says ink

 I'll get around to that masculine version at some point in time!
