Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Magic Painted Christmas Card

Well, good morning and welcome back to the work week.  Hope you’ve got a good week ahead!  And – if you’re in FL or on the east coast and impacted by Ian…I know that ALL of us are sending prayers and hope for healing and recovery your direction! We were very fortunate here in Atlanta – we didn’t get so much as a raindrop.  My heart hurts watching the devastation! 🙁

Okay – on with the business at hand!  My card today is a Christmas card – I mean…it’s October, so…time to get on the stick!  This one uses the pretty Mistletoe Magic Bundle and some sweet Painted Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Mistletoe Magic Painted Christmas Card

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Painted Christmas DSP to a piece of Garden Green cardstock for the card front.

Next, I cut out the largest Stylish Shapes circle die from Basic White cardstock and embossed it in the pine-bough Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Mistletoe Dies to cut out….

– A large detailed…sprig?…from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and a second sprig from Vellum Cardstock.

– Six Garden Green pine boughs – 3 of each of the two sizes.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large image from Mistletoe Magic in Garden Green.  Then I cut it out with the matching die from the bundled Mistletoe Dies.

I colored the leaves with my Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends – the stem with the Light Crumb Cake AND Light Soft Sea Foam Blend – and the berries with the Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends.  I swiped some Clear Wink of Stella over the berries.

I started by adhering the die cut foliage to the embossed circle using Liquid Glue.  You can see I snipped the ends off the boughs to keep them inside the circle. 🙂

Then I added the stamped, colored and die cut mistletoe sprig with more Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Mistletoe Magic sentiment in Garden Green on a piece of Basic White and cut it with a label die from Stylish Shapes.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the dies to cut a pretty bow from some Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered it with Liquid Glue – tucking it up under the sentiment.

I added a pink 2021-2023 In Color Opal Round to the sentiment and some Iridescent Basic Jewels to the card front (and one to the middle of the bow) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Mistletoe Magic sentiment in Garden Green on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the smaller mistletoe image in Garden Green and colored it with the Soft Sea Foam, Crumb Cake and Flirty Flamingo Blends.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the berries.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the small Mistletoe Magic sprig on the front…

…and more of the Painted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How pretty is the Mistletoe Magic foliage – both the stamped images and the sweet die cut sprigs from the bundled Mistletoe Dies?!  And I think they’re perfect on the Painted Christmas DSP, don’t you?  Now – you may be wondering if I REALLY needed to emboss the circle in the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.  I know you can’t really see it in the pictures.  But – in person…you can for sure tell it’s embossed with pine boughs and…it’s a sweet little finishing touch!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wanna know how FAST FAST FAST an Aussie is?!?

Well….I can’t speak to other people’s Aussies.  But – MINE is so fast…

He can beat us back to the house carrying his bottle.

And have time to settle down – perfectly position the aforementioned bottle and then….give us “the look”.

That look.  The side-eye.  The furry eyeball.  The one that says…sheesh.  You guys is SLOWWW.

And then he laughs at us. 🤷‍♀️
