This entry for Beccy's Place Sixth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge inspired by the letter "U" is Under the Mistletoe. This sweet little owl image [her name is Ophelia] is from a Beccy's Place digi set named "You're a Hoot." The mistletoe image is from the set "Tied Up With String" and sentiment on the front of the card is from a Beccy's Place digi set named "Sweet Shoppe." The inside sentiment is a sticker from my stash. Also, since one of my new goals is to try to decorate the inside sentiment to match the front the card, I printed, colored and fussy-cut a extra bow from the mistletoe and attached it to the inside sentiment. A little tedious, but I like how it dresses up an otherwise boring sticker.

Is fun to see a few Fall themed challenges still pop up again. It’s a sign that winter isn't quite here… yet. [At least for my little part of the world.] I used this sentiment on a card a few years ago. It makes me smile with its childlike wisdom. Used my favorite Embossing Arts Leaf stamp and an old- but thankfully not yet dried out- Autumn Kaleidoscope ink pad to create the wonderful fall coloring. I got some wonderful second generation images by stamping a few times before re-inking. Then, added touches of bling by adding tiny drops of Nuvo Crystal drops in rich fall colors. Am entering this into several challenges including CAS-ual Fridays "Shades of Gold" [opting for non-metallic shades of gold in the leaves and metallic gold and bronze in the Nuvo drops.]

Used a wonderful digi image from The Paper Shelter named "Yep I Have My Methods" to make this Diagonal Trifold card. Found the info on Pinterest [template is here- lavenderthoughts.com/2009/12/29/trifold-angle-card-tutorial]. Printed off, colored and then fussy-cut the Santa, the adhered him to the front of the card. I wanted to have the balloon look like it was floating in space so cut a thin strip of acetate to work as an invisible support brace. The sentiment visible when the card is closed is a freebie from TLC [createwithtlc.blogspot.com] and the inside sentiment is from a Beccy's Place digi set named "Keeping It Simple."
