Even though it’s still 25 weeks until Christmas, I’m taking part in The Heart of Christmas, a weekly blog bringing you Handmade Christmas Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team.
Every Wednesday morning we will be posting some Christmas card inspiration using products from the new 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, as well as from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (available in September).
“Merry Mistletoe” Card
As soon as I saw this stamp set in the new annual catalogue I knew I just had to have it. I loved every single stamp in the the set, including the sentiments, the fonts, the tree, the mistletoe, but most of all…I fell in love with that reindeer.
So you can only imagine just how I excited I was when I discovered there was matching DSP paper for the reindeer in the Be Merry Designer Series Paper–see the paper on the far right in the photo below. It is exactly the same image as the reindeer stamp!
For my Merry Mistletoe card I’ve simply stamped the reindeer stamp onto real red card stock using red red and whisper white ink. I’ve used a small strip of the Be Merry paper so it looks like washi tape and finished it off with some of the new silver 1/8 inch ribbon.
The final touch is part of a sentiment from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set punched out with the classic punch and a clear faceted gem on my gorgeous white reindeer.
I hope you enjoyed stopped by today. You can go back to Claire’s blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made.
