Simply Stampin Challenge - Leaves

I bought a Stampin' Up! exclusive die called Little Leaves a while ago, and it seemed foolinsh not to use it with this weeks theme of leaves! As Christmas is approaching I decided to make the die cut into a branch of mistletoe, and partner it with some of the lovely new designer series papers.

The papers are from a set called Holly Berry Bouquet, which is a speciality set - some of the designs are glittered (the red stripe across the centre of the card is from the glittered papers). I have also added dazzling diamonds to the edges of the leaves, and to the mistletoe berries, to look as if they have a coating of frost. Here is a close up, where you can also see how I have added some dimension to the leaves:

I hope you like it!

  2. What a fab card, ingenious to use the Little Leaves die as a mistletoe spray! Love the added sparkle too!
