Merry Mistletoe


Hi everyone! This is one of my all time favorite holiday images. The gorgeous patterned papers and pre-colored image featured on today's card are all from the Merry Mistletoe digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.  I love this pretty shade of pink combined with white and cream, it gives the card such an elegant look.


My card base is Garden Green layered with White Cardstock then digital patterned paper stitched around the edges. Next I wrapped white lace around the card base. The image was printed on Vintage Cream then die cut and embossed using the Standard Circles Small Nestabilites. I layered it on White Cardstock die cut using the Standard Circles Large Nestabilities then Garden Green die cut using the Floral Doily Motifs Nestabilities. To embellish the card I added Champaine Dew Drops along the Floral Doily Motifs and finished it off with a bow made from White Grosgrain Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
