Kissing Santa

Hello Peepsicles, hope you are well this fine Wednesday afternoon.
 
I have another Christmas Card for you. Here we go....


 
The sentiment is from a fab stamp set I came across whilst browsing Country View Crafts website. It's called Egg & Nog 9 (SIEN9) from the Squiggly Ink range by PaperArtsy. I absolutely adore Squiggly Ink stamps, I've got quite a few in my collection now.
 
So..on with the card. Firstly, I stamped the sentiment on white card with black Versfine and trimmed it to size. I cut a section of patterned paper (Mistletoe Collection 6x6 pad - Bo Bunny) and adhered the sentiment at the top. White seam binding was tied and knotted around the patterned paper under the sentiment.
 
I die cut three mistletoe branches (Vixen Limited Edition dies - QuicKutz) in green card, arranged and stuck them to the lower right hand corner of the paper panel. I embellised the mistletoe with pearls and a tiny red button threaded with white cord.
 
I don't usually follow the traditional red/green combo, but the new Bo Bunny Mistletoe Collection is gorgeous with really bright reds and greens. Very retro.
 
That's me for the time being, thanks for visiting. xx
