Meet Me Under the Mistletoe



Here's a little clean-and-simple holiday card idea. A little different from my normal style, huh? The sprig of mistletoe and the accompanying sentiment are from Santa Baby, newly released by My Favorite Things. Click on the link to see the full set - there's such a wonderful variety of images jam-packed into this awesome set! I stamped onto MFT's Perfect Paper Panels, colored with Copics and Prismacolors, then die-cut the panel using the Labels 5 Nestabilities. I added some black self-adhesive pearls, a black button, some black perfect plaid ribbon, and a little machine stitching, all on a three-layer Kraft backdrop.

Short and sweet today :) Thanks so much for visiting and for all the kind comments! You are such an encouragement to me!
