Mistletoe Wishes


Hi, Terri here. Today I am sharing a striking Mistletoe Wreath Christmas card using lots Altenew products. Lets jump right in and see how I created it.



I started by stamping the Mistletoe Wreath using Antique Gold Pigment Ink, stamping onto 80lb super smooth cardstock. I heat set the ink as it takes a little longer than dye ink to dry and I didn't want any smudges.


I embossed a piece of pink cardstock using the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder, I then ink blended using the Red Sunset Fresh Dye Ink Bundle, leaving a lighter area in the centre of the card and darker ink at the edges to create drama.



Next I started adding the colours to the wreath using the Mistletoe Wreath Layering Stencils. I chose ink colours from the following ink bundles Red Sunset Fresh Dye Ink Bundle, Summer Afternoon Fresh Dye Ink Bundle and Green Fields Fresh Dye Ink Bundle. The layering stencils are ethced so they are easy to align and the insert in the packagin also has instructions.


I used the Mistletoe Wreath Die to cut the Wreath and also a banner to stamp the sentiment on. I stamped the sentiemnt using Crimson Fresh Dye Ink.



I added the wreath and banner to my embossed panel using foam pads and then mounted it onto an A2 red card blank. At this point I thought the card needed some extra details so I added some gold  inky splatters using the Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink Reinker and then placed some red enamel dots from the New Day Enamel Dots.


I am really happy with how this card turned out I hope you like it too. Thank you for stopping by today, see you next week.
