Mistletoe for CAS Christmas

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


I love all the detail in this die! 

Before I've colored this like holly.  Today it's posing as mistletoe.

A few pearls work well for berries.

I love this letterpress foil frame that a sweet friend sent it to me!
(Guess what's landing in my shopping cart?)

Such pretty colours for the mistletoe Bonnie and I love the one die cut in white in the background, and the added pearls look great on the foliage. I also love the elegant look of the offset gold foiled frame and die cut sentiment and then the coordinated gold cord around the mistletoe to finish. x

So elegant, Bonnie and I love the shade of green and the pretty pearls. It does remind me I have to get back to my commitment of at least one Christmas card per month. I missed April so I guess I need two for May!

I love this Mistletoe die most of all, Bonnie! I've dropped the ball on my Christmas card wish, and the year is almost half over!
Maybe you've inspired me to get with the program!
OH you didn't!! Will we be seeing lots of foiling in your future posts?

Very pretty. Love the gold foiled frame. The pearls work great as the berries for the mistletoe. TFS

I can not get over just how many different card ideas you have in that creative mind of your. This one is so very attractive and I love the pearls used for accents. Awesome framing too. I don't know how to do this but I sure would like to learn. I just find that framing really sets off your design. - how do you spell perfection? Bonnie Klass that's how!!!

Hi Bonnie. This is so pretty. I love the layered mistletoe and gold frame! Btw, the theme at Happy Little Stampers Christmas is 'Mistletoe'

Barb Ghig said...

Your mistletoe is absolutely gorgeous, Bonnie! I love the shades of green that you chose for the leaves (?) and that you used pearls for the berries...so clever and so elegant! I'm also in love with your gold foiling as a frame...WOW! I may have to invest in a few of these products...this card would be great to mass produce for the holidays. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us at CAS Christmas! xx

Love how you coloured one of the mistletoe branches and left the other one white. Beautiful pearl berries! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Christmas.

This is so classy and elegant, Bonnie! I love that you layered the green mistletoe die-cut over the white one. The pearl berries are pretty! I haven't used pearls recently, so you inspired me to use them.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the gold foil frame piece. Frames are the best part of the foiling system, in my opinion, because heat-embossing can be used for sentiments and images for shine.
