ABC Christmas Challenge: M is for Mistletoe


I have been crafting while offline: it's amazing how much gets done when I'm not on Facebook or Twitter!

This is my first card for ABC Christmas Challenge. The theme is Mistletoe. Up to now the themes haven't really suited the Christmas stamps I have (note to self: get more stamps!!) but this one seems to fit, I think.

The stamp is from Woodware and I used a green Kaleidocolor pad to give some variation to the image. I like the faux buttonhole stitch around the leaves and border. I used a corner punch which seems to be by a firm called 'Make Me!', and stickled the edges. I'm gradually getting the hang of stickling, it's not as easy as it looks!

Hope you're having a nice, sunny evening!

luv, Mags

Recipe: papers are Dovecraft for the bp; and DCWV 'Garden Party' for the strip, which I punched with a holly border punch by Woodware. The sentiment is from stash and the ribbon from a top from New Look!
