Handmade mistletoe Christmas cards for ways using Stampin' Up! Shining Brightly paper, Layering Leaves stamps, bough punch and Wishes All Round stamps and die bundle. Card by Diane Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - stampinupcards - colourmehappy - stamping

Hello and welcome! Today I have a new share for the Just Add Ink design team.  Nikki gave us a super flexible sketch to work with and I immediately thought Christmas cards!... and not just because it's almost October and time is a ticking. The sketch looked perfect for the beautifully elegant Shining Brightly specialty paper pack, as there are two colourways of the same design, all foiled in gold. I chose the leafy design and teamed it with the Layering Leaves stamp set to create some elegant Christmas cards, Here's the first of four cards I made.

Hello and welcome to a new team project share for this week's Just Add Ink challenge, which is to just add wildlife to a project. This is also my first project using new Mini Catalogue goodies, and it's my first Christmas card for 2023. Yay!

I LOVE polar bears so I couldn't resist the super cute hand drawn images in the Beary Christmas paper pack, which of course conveniently fit the wildlife challenge theme. Here's how my card turned out.
