merry kissmas...

Hello everyone!  Rosemary here today and with the holiday fast approaching I am in Christmas card making mode, lol!  So today I'm sharing a quick card that I put together using the Merry KISSmas stamp set and the Merry Mistletoe die set.

To make things super quick I decided to use patterned paper for all my die cuts.  I recently rediscovered two pads of Tim Holtz Christmas papers that I had purchased over a year ago.  I knew I had them... just couldn't figure out where they were.  Then one day as I was trying to get things a little more organized I found them... yay!    The pad I used is full of papers with muted reds and greens and lots of different kinds of plaids.  I used a green plaid for the mistletoe and a piece that had a floral type pattern on it for the bow.  To tie everything together I used a strip of patterned paper that had both colors in it.  That was adhered to white cardstock and then die cut with the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  I adhered the mistletoe and bow to the panel and then added a little button with some red twine threaded through it.  It was at this point I realized that I had not stamped the sentiment!  Yikes!  Thankfully I was able to stamp it without any problem using my stamp positioning tool.  I finished the panel off by adding a line of the twine to the top portion of the patterned paper strip and adhered the card to a dark red cardstsock base.
