Who wouldn’t want a Christmas kiss from the lovely¬†Kissing Under The Mistletoe¬†by Crafty Sentiments Designs?She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and the mistletoe berries given dimension with Liquid Pearls.Unfortunately the camera has failed to pick up on the 3D Crystal Lacquer on her boots – but it is there,honest ūüôā She’s been fussy cut to allow her to be added to the wreath.I made this by die cutting a kraft card ring,then arranging die cut foliage of holly leaves and two types of pine branches,letting the base cardstock to peek through.All topped off with a couple of sprigs of mistletoe – of course!I trimmed one stem to make it a little shorter than the other.That’s the beauty of this die as you can decide how you want to make it up as all the components are cut separately.The ribbon hanging loop has been stapled on for security then covered with the bow for a neater finish.A few recycled pearly buttons have been scattered around¬†for extra decoration ūüôā
