Punch art mistletoe …

Hi, and welcome to my blog.  

There’s a brand new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown website, and for this week’s theme inspiration, I chose “mistletoe and wine” for my Design Team card and made some punch art mistletoe …


Cherry cobbler cardstock was perfect for the card base as this is lovely, lush, deep red wine colour.  So, that was the wine element of the challenge taken care of.  Next, came the punch art mistletoe in old olive cardstock which I adhered to a layer of whisper white cardstock.  I added adhesive pearls for the berries …


The sentiment came from a Papermania Christmas set that I’ve had in my crafty stash for many years.  It’s not been inked up for some time – I almost had to blow the cobwebs off it! The stamp didn’t ink up as well as my lovely Stampin’ Up stamps, but I think I managed it ok.  It was fun colouring in the letters though, and the holly too …


I’m crazy about Christmas and love all things festive! I think I inherited this from my mum who made Christmas magical and truly the most wonderful time of the year.


So, I hope you like my card for this week. It would be easy to reproduce and make lots of these for that long list of friends and family you have to send cards to at Christmas. 

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team have been making for you.
