MERRY MONDAY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE #249 - MISTLETOE

Merry Monday #249 (Mistletoe)

 
 
Hello fellow stampers!   The Hostess for this week's challenge is Colleen.    Her challenge is to create a Christmas Card using Mistletoe.   I thought I would share some information first,  with you on the story of Mistletoe.
 
The legend of mistletoe: 
At one time, mistletoe was placed over door ways for good luck.  It was believed that only happiness could pass beneath the mistletoe, therefore, rivals would embrace and seal their peaceful intensions with a kiss of friendship.
 
 
For my card I used the "Banner's for Christmas" stamp set.   It has a beautiful stamp of mistletoe, and I then added a  strip of glitter and finished the edge off with the "Finishing Touches Edgelits" in dark green.  I hung the mistletoe bunch upside down on the card and finished it off with a beautiful bow, mounted on a small stitched square with the "Joy" die cut.
