Mistletoe Christmas

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #38
Christmas Traditions

This fortnights challenge theme has been chosen by DT sister Sall.  Christmas Traditions - I get the feeling Sall is on a Christmas card making roll lol.

For my creation I decided to go with all foiling.  Last year hubby bought me a TODO which does foiling via laser printing and also foils using dies that don't cut.  I bought a few dies but as always, they are costly but luck was on my side the other week and I managed to get a whole load in a sale.  Silver card was used as my base with a white embossed layering following.  A simple while layer with silver foiling of a Mistletoe spray followed.  Next I foiled the four corners and die cut them then I foiled the sentiment which I added to a die cut backing.  To finish off the card I added three pearls.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-


  1. The mistletoe is a perfect centrepiece for your beautiful card. The foiling looks great. Hazel x

  6. Too darn right I was on a Christmas Card making roll, I literally only have one left and as I am making a 3d book it will wait a ee while so it's not destroyed before I post it. I am determined that next year I will not be making 100, I am cutting down whether people like it or not!
