Inside the card I stamped the Mistletoe wheel, three more pine cones and added the Peace, love & joy sentiment oval. I stamped the Mistletoe wheel on the front of the envelope and added some berry twigs.
For the second card I stamped the sprig of mistletoe all over the card front as a background and I've used plain square and lacey square Nestabilities dies for the layers. I stamped the pine bough repeatedly on the white panel, again stamping twice before re-inking. This time, I just inked up the berries with a marker leaving the twig uninked. I added Crystal Effects to each berry so they are raised and shiny. I stamped three cones using Adirondack Ginger ink, stamping off once and rock 'n rolling in Early Espresso ink and I cut each cone out. I added a strip of Rich Razzleberry ribbon, popped up the cones and then added a bow with a gold jingle bell over the top. I rounded the corners of the white and Old Olive squares and the white square is popped up.
Inside this card I stamped the mistletoe image after stamping off once first and then stamped the sentiment over the top. A simple stamped mistletoe sprig on the envelope flap and I was finished.
I fell in love with the Peaceful Wishes set a few years ago when I saw it in an SU! catalogue sent to me from the USA. It went on my wish list and I finally acquired it this year. I also decided I must have the matching Mistletoe wheel but I found that seemed to come up for sale quite rarely on eBay so I had to be patient for that. My patience paid off eventually and I got my wheel a couple of months back. I am SO glad I got these stamps, there's a timeless quality to them that I just love. I hope I can be making cards with these gorgeous stamps for many years!
