Oh By Gosh By Golly....

Silly as it may seem, when I saw the sentiments in this stamp set it reminded of when I used to watch the Christmas musicals on TV, and I won't tell you who was singing them.  :-D  This is one of the hardest pictures I have taken.  The Whites just really didn't show right.

The card fold is again the Twisted Easel for 4.25X5.5 cards and the instructions can be found HERE.

All of the images on my card are from Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe.  The mistletoe was stamped twice with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink, cut out, and painted with Twinkling H2O's.  The base was done by first using a Spellbinders Circle die with Bazzill Dotted Swiss Irish Eyes DP, cut and embossed.  Next, the white layer was first embossed with Cuttlebug folder D'Vine Swirls and then embossed again using their Swiss Dots.  A Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle die was then used for the shape.  The first mistletoe image was mounted.  Then the second one was embossed using a stylus to raise the bow, leaves, and berries, then mounted, using the first one as a base.  Glossy Accents was added to the berries.

Both the card front and the base were done with the same cardstocks and techniques as above.

The sentiments were done using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on white cardstock and then using the same embossing folders as above.  (You would have a hard time stamping over the Swiss Dots) :-D  The shape for the first one is from a Spellbinders Circle die and then then Magic Matter with the Bazzill Dotted Swiss Irish Eyes DP for the bottom circle.  The second sentiment was done the same as the first with the exception that a Spellbinders Tags One die was used and adjusted as shown for the edges.

The ribbon is leftover from I think Michaels.  The pearls are Mark Richards 3 and 5mm.  The stick pin is from Maya Road Trinkets and the beads are Czech glass beads.

That's all for today!  Thanks for stopping by to look and say hi!!

Donna Ellis said...

Shirley, how amazing! I didn't know you could use two embossing folders, and retain the integrity of the first one. The effect is stunning! Your fussy cutting is so perfect. After you cut an image out like that, do you go over it with the coloring medium to cover up with white edges? The shading is so pretty - and your card is lush and elegant. Thanks for always sharing your tips and ideas, in addition to your beautiful talent.

Sally said...

Love seeing your twisted easel cards and I always enlarge your cards to get as good a look as possible. They're gorgeous. I love all the mistletoe and it is so pretty on your circle die. Looks as if someone could get a good 'kissin' just from making this card. LOL
