Mistletoe

Hi, Janja here!

For the last card in this year I selected mistletoe. Supposedly mistletoe brings good luck in the coming year. While, other plants in winter rests, the mistletoe is full of life. Her greenery keeps the hope for the arrival of spring.



For the card we need:
- CottageCutz dies: holiday greenery, circle set, stitched circle set
- white cardstock
- patterned paper
- kraft cardstock
- cartstock in golden and green color
- string

Cut white cardstock to size 15.9 x 5.3" (40,5 x 13,5 cm). The folds are made on 5,3" and 10.6" (13,5 cm and 27 cm). Cut both tabs along the diagonal.


Cut selected paper:
- 3x for background: 5.2 x 5.2" (13,1 x 13,1 cm), one cut in half diagonally
- 1x for tag: 4.7 x 4.7" (12 x 12 cm)
- kraft cardstock: 5 x 5" (12,6 x 12,6 cm)


Cut out two circles with the largest die from circle set and other two with stitched circle set (the 8th die from the center) . Two white circles, one from kraft and one from golden cardstock. I replaced the green one on photo with golden one.
 

Prepare a few mistletoe and twigs cutouts. Apply pearl dots on them.
 

Paste patterned paper on kraft base. In the middle of the upper part, attach the eyelet and insert a string.
 

Cover the card base with selected patterned paper. Paste both triangular parts on the card base with double-side adhesive tape.
 

Stamp "Happy New Year" with golden ink on circle, and arrange mistletoe together with twigs and golden bow.
 

Fix circle on the card base. 



Thank you for coming over and have a great day.
