Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

Hey everyone, I have a Christmas card for you today using the Die-Versions Mistletoe die.  This is a pretty simple card and could easily be mass produced.  (I think using the Cracked Glass technique on the top layer would look really good too.  Next time :-).)

The background uses basic shapes from the Ticket Fold A Long die and each layer is covered with soon-to-be released Chunky Embossing Powders from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The base is red, black, and white chunky powders, the center mat is covered with a red/white combo, and the top layer is a chunky red.

The Mistletoe is also covered with Sparkle embossing powder, but I couldn't get it to show up in any of the photos.  I added some gems for the berries and a ribbon to finish it off.

Be sure to check back at the DV Blog often to see what the rest of the team has created for you.

Anne, this is so sparkly and pretty! I love those jeweled berries in your mistletoe, and all the pretty red layers with tons of texture! Just got some of those new chunky powders and can hardly wait to try them! Thanks for the ideas - SO GORGEOUS! I can almost taste the cinnamon candy or candy apple from the textures on your card, Anne! (the friends connect is still not showing up on my puter, but is on my ipad, so I'll restart LOL hopefully that will take care of the situation) Hope your trip was enjoyable! xoxox

Fun die. I can see a bunch of that cut out and then tied together and hung over a door way. Fun!!! Your card is wonderful with all the bling and sparkle and red. Hugz
