Unscripted Mistletoe


This little SU rub-on fell out of the sky and on to my desk yesterday….I have no idea where it was hiding, but I felt compelled to use it on my Christmas card today!  This card really looks much better in real life than it does here in the photo---it just makes me smile!


I used the Unscripted Sketch #55, shown here:

US Sketch 55

and some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly papers, a CB embossing folder and a snowflake from SU.  The rub-on is on vellum which has been punched with a jumbo scallop punch and subtly embellished with some glitter!  Can ya see it?


For the inside, I used the negative snowflake piece and stamped a couple sentiments from CHF in Real Red:





I just love this effect!  I know with the “ho ho ho” sentiment, I should have gone with a Santa, but I was feeling rebellious!  LOL!

Thanks for visiting today!
