Mistletoe and Wine

Remember the Christmas song by Cliff Richard, Mistletoe and Wine? well, that's the inspiration for our cards at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, chosen by Gill, hop over to her blog and she will explain why.
For my card I combined two mistletoe images in a square design, keeping the card monochromatic by using lucky Limeade for all the stamping. One image is from Easy Events stamp set, the other is a freebie. I used a darker shade of green for the mat, and scored a frame around the two white squares. I added pearl berries to one of the sprigs.

"So, where is the wine?"  I hear you say. 
Well, I left it for the inside of my card. Using the same ink and a masking technique I stamped a couple of glasses and a sentiment from the set Happy Hour.

Do have a look at the cards on the challenge blog, and now we are into August, remember Christmas is only four months away. better get started on those cards!


  1. This is lovely Louise, I really like the 4 squares layout and the Lucky Limeade ink is perfect for the images you used! What a wonderful way to incorporate the wine aspect of the challenge by stamping inside - ingenious!

  4. A perfect card which fits beautifully with the challenge. I love the colours you've chosen - lucky limeade is one of my favourites - I was so sad when this retired. The card has a designer feel, and what a brilliant idea to add the wine element to the inside - you clever lady! Thank you for your fabulous interpretation of the challenge, hugs, Gill xx

  5. Louise - this is fab! I love the layout and the colour (my favourite) is perfect. Great way to incorporate the wine too!

  7. Your monochromatic design is great - and that's a cute way to include the wine element inside!
