Noel Mistletoe

Published by at 12 55 am under Christmas Cards,Inkadinkado

Simplicity. That’s where I’m at with Christmas cards this year! These simple little cards are made with a 2″ strip of designer paper, a simple focal image and a one word sentiment. Truly, it doesn’t get any easier. And I love this white simplicity. The Limited Supply Challenge at SCS this week was to use a circle and a rectangle on your card. Well, I took that literally and that’s ALL I used.


As you can see, I’ve used three different layouts with my 2″ strip of DP. This little mistletoe image is in the Cool Christmas set by Inkadinkado. I got mine from Joan’s Garden. I used this set two days ago with some bird images — really loving it. Easy to color, easy to work with. No dimensionals on this (oh, but I was tempted – LOL!), just a twinkle sticker at the bow center. Leaves are colored with Copics and the berries are colored with a red Spica Glitter Pen by Copic. Images cut and embossed with Petite Circle Nestabilities. Just a short post tonight.

Stamps: Cool Christmas by Inkadinkado. Many Merry Messages by SU. Paper: PTI White, SU Black and Holiday Treasures DP. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. Copics in YG03, YG95. Red Spica Glitter Pen. Accessories: A Muse Twinkle Stickers, Petite Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders.

Hope you enjoyed these simple cards. I tell you, I AM enjoying super simple!!! And I will have lots more of these simple and flat Christmas cards coming through the next many weeks. My SU order is in town, waiting to be picked up, and I’m also working on a fun project that will be a gift for a stamping friend. Hope you check back in to see!!! Thanks so much for stopping in today — so MUCH appreciated!!! Happy weekend everyone!!!

    Very cute! I love the simplicity of them

  8. These exude such a quiet and understated elegance. Your watercoloring of the mistletoe is so highly detailed and precise. Without the precision of your focal image you might not have attained such exquisite results. My hat’s off to you for creating the perfect card. Simply amazing and oh so very pleasing to the eye. Makes me want to inhale deeply and smile.
