I used the beautiful new Merry Mistletoe die set to create and mistletoe to hang from the roof of my Christmas Chalet. I started by blending a couple of panels of Neenah Solar White cardstock using a few Catherine Pooler Inks. I blended a panel with Grass Skirt and Seafoam and then flicked some water onto the panel and splattered a bit of watered down COPIC Opaque White. Once dry I cut the four mistletoe branches from the new Merry Mistletoe die set.

Then I blended another panel with Coral Cabana and Rocket Red for my bow and berries. Once again I  flicked some water onto the panel and splattered a bit of watered down COPIC Opaque White.The snowy roof line from the new Sweet Christmas die set was cut with sparkling white cardstock. The background was blended with It's A Boy and Stone Blue Catherine Pooler Inks onto a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock which was cut to 5 1/4" x 4".

The snowy rooftop with the mistletoe hanging on it was glued to the background panel and then I stamped a sentiment from the new Merry Kissmas stamp set at the bottom in black! The panel was adhered to a white card base with foam tape for a bit of dimension. Five berries were randomly added to the mistletoe keeping it an odd number to that that design looked balanced.

Have a look at the lovely texture you can get just from cutting all the pieces of the die from ink blended cardstock!
