Mistletoe Christmas Cards


My mission was to get started on some Christmas cards and also use this wonderful Mistletoe border.  I've combined it with some of my other favorite Doohickey Dies from Magnolia-licious!

I saw a card design like this once and they called it a Magic card, but I know Magic cards as something to do with the coloring magically appearing, so decided I would call this a Winged Card design.  The flaps on the sides allow it to stand up and there is a flap attached from the top to provide an inside too as you'll see in another photo.

The wonderful dies from that sweet Diana at Magnolia-licious:
DH 16 MISTLETOE BORDER DIE
DH 17 SNOWFLAKE AND MISTLETOE DIES
DH 31 MINI DOILY DIE
DH 57 SCALLOPED DOTTED LACE BORDER DIE
DH 68 SPRAWLING FERNS DIE
DH 71 POINSETTIA DIES

I used a 1/4" round circle punch to make the white berries for the mistletoe, but a person could also use a white gel pen or even pearls.  Of all the Poinsettia Dies I thought I had to have, I end up using this one because I also like to use the petals for leaves.  It is such a great leaf shape!!!

Here is a bit of a side view so the flaps can be seen a little better.
I am going to add things to the inside.....perhaps a Magnolia Tilda Stamp from the new Winter Wonderland Collection, but haven't been able to get to that just yet.  But here is a photo of the inside to show the top flap.
We also need quick and easy cards that we can make in quantities and are able to fit in a flat envelope, so I made this one also with the Mistletoe Border.
For this photo I left the card open a little to see the gate fold which is so easy to score with the Scor-Pal!!!   Love these center openings for something different.

Be sure to check out the other dies that Diana carries at Magnolia-licious too!  She is carrying a terrific assortment of so many different kinds besides the Doohickey dies with great prices!!!  HERE is a link to the dies.  Just click on the brand you want to see on the left!

Been out of commission for a little while, but slowly getting back into things.  I will be writing up more of the details on the Winged Card eventually, so stay tuned!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and also for your kind comments!!!  Enjoy every day!!!

Still brilliant.
