Mistletoe magic - Spellblogger for Spellbinders

When I saw this Mistletoe Card Front die from Spellbinders, I just had to get it - the design is one that can be used year round for pretty cards, not just for Christmas. It's a great size, the border is 5" x 7", the insert is 4.50" x 6.50". This first card is one of the prettiest I made, but is also the one that was impossible to photograph well, a simple inked background (Simon says stamp Sea Glass ink), and a white embossed vellum band


For this next card, I chopped it up a bit, and just cut elements of the design, cut out of green glitter paper. The 'berries' are clear Nuvo drops, which took on the colour of the card. The sentiment is from the Ho Ho Ho sentiment set



and another one, made with the same die cut, but this time, the berries are white enamel accents


Then I found some gold glitter card, and put that onto a white card base, adding some copper liquid pearl berries.......



This next one was an experiment, but I rather like it, I stuck the die cut onto a white card, then inked over the whole thing with distress inks. The berries this time are Platinum liquid pearls......I thought this would make a nice birthday card for someone....



and my last experiment was to ink the die cut with Autumn colours before putting it onto a kraft card base. This time I added some sequins for a bit of sparkle. Which card do you like best?


I'll be back tomorrow with my Daring Cardmaker card - these weeks seem to be whizzing by, and the mornings are a bit dark and dreary these days as well. Time to get a couple of good books and snuggle down on the couch I think

  6. What a lovely selection of cards using the die, Enfys. I love them all, but my favourite is the green and white one with the white enamel dots. The green is so striking against the white background. xx
