Under the Mistletoe

Hi there

Ever since CASology posted their latest challenge with the code word 'Under' the cogs have been turning very slowly in my mind to come up with an idea.

Then this!  Where do people stand to kiss at Christmas?  UNDER the mistletoe!  So I had a rummage through my stamps when I came home this evening and luckily I found a mistletoe image in a stamp set that was free with a publication...phew!

Here's my clean and simple card...

Continuing on with the 'under' theme I stamped the mistletoe on the base card so that it would appear under the panel I placed over the top, which was die cut to create a circular aperture.  I coloured the mistletoe with FlexMarkers and finished by stamping a small sentiment to keep the card very clean and simple.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: 'Tis the Season - free set with publication; Personal Impressions - Butterfly Kisses and Christmas Wishes (sentiment)
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Coloured with FlexMarkers
  • Die: Xcut - Nested Circles

I would also like to link up this card at the following challenge blogs:
