Under the Mistletoe

Hello everyone,
 A happy Sunday to you all and enjoy the last day of May.

I am still needing to get a Christmas card into the 12 Months of Christmas link up, so I have just managed to scrape in under the bell. I did one early in the month and this is my second one and I have used the challenge theme..Christmas Critters.

This is my card with all the details below.

I saw this shape on the blog of one of my blogging friends Sylvia and she has kindly put the template on her blog. I just resized it to fit my card.

I used some scraps of Christmas paper left over from previous years.

The image is Under the Misletoe from Digistamps4Joy and you can find it HERE
I coloured it with Distress inkpads, added pearls and glitter. Cut it out with A Nellie Snellen die.
Added a Christmas tree, also cut with a Nellie's die...a very old one and 2 tags, stamped a sentiment onto the one.

Finished off with pearls.

I love this card and I think I will use it more often...thanks Sylvia.

What a wonderfully innovative Christmas card. It would be perfect for a Christmas wedding or a newlywed's first Christmas together. Great fold and design. Love the tree.

Loving the cute image and love the card design- it would be a fun way to stretch dies that are too small for a card front for sure! Thanks so much for joining the Tuesday Throwdown AG challenge!
