I have a clean & simple card for you today using the Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic stamp stamp set. It begins with a Basic White panel that I placed on my Scoring Tool and scored from the 3/4″ mark to the 1 3/4″. When using the Scoring Tool, you are leaving an indentation. So if the idea is to have the area raised, which I did, once finished scoring, simply turn the panel over and there it is! I have seen several cards with scoring similar to this on Pinterest and simply HAD to give it a try. There has been no name so I can’t give credit. Here is my completed card.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Dies & Mistletoe Magic.1

Can you see the scored lines? Fun, right?! After scoring, I pulled out the Christmas Banners Dies and Garden Green card stock and die cut two pine fronds. I then got Real Red and Early Espresso and die cut a stem with berries. I’m not sure sure you can see it very well, but I added the berries to the stem and slipped it between the two pine fronds, adhering all three together with liquid glue, then to the card front. I think you can see the red berries peeking through in the photo above :O) I made a bow with the 3/8″ Real Red Ribbon from the Combo Pack, then folded over a length to add more ‘tails’ to the bow. These I adhered with glue dots to the pine bundle. I then stamped the Merry Christmas with Memento ink. I know, this seems out of sequence, but I wanted the placement of the sentiment in the right spot. The sentiment comes from Mistletoe Magic stamp set and it’s lengthy. I taped one word, inked, removed the tape and stamped – the Merry first, then followed the same procedure with the word Christmas. I added three dots of Pearlized Enamel Effects in Real Red and set the card aside to dry.

Stampin' Up! Mistletoe Magic.2

I stamped this beautiful mistletoe image from Mistletoe Magic in Memento ink on a Basic White panel, then colored it, first with Cherry Cobbler Blends for the berries, then Garden Green reinker & a Water Painter for the leaves. I put just one drop of reinker in the lid of a Garden Green ink pad, then one drop of water to the reinker drop, then pained the color to the paper. Because this is not watercolor paper or Shimmer paper, it’s important not to add water to the paper itself, just the ink color. And it works well that way. I adhered this to the inside of Thick Basic White card base, then added the card front to the front of this same Thick Basic White. I did have to be careful as the little Pearlized Enamel Effects were not quite dry. I usually let them dry for a good hour or two.

I kept the envelope very simple by stamping the image from Mistletoe Magic stamp set in Memento ink to both the envelope front & the flap as well, but chose not to color it.It lets the card be the focus :O) I also did some scoring with the Scoring Tool on the envelope flap. It’s hard to see in the photo but it’s on the left end. I love how this turned out and I’m thinking how to use the scoring as an effect on future cards.
