Can you guess the Christmas Song which I have based this “tee pee” card on?  NO!  Well I should tell you –  “I saw mummy kissing Santa Claus” underneath the mistletoe last night.  Yes the Magnolia Stamp is “Mistletoe Tilda”.   I’ve made this card for the Christmas Cards All Year ‘Round May Challenge which is to create a card inspired by your favourite Christmas carol or song

I coloured the stamped image with Copics.  Usually when I cut out stamped images I cut right on the black line but this time I left a fine white border (which I notice is quite popular with some stampers).  I left a border to make it easier to cut around the fine details of the mistletoe.

Here are photos of the sides of the card –

I have used the “mistletoe” die from C.C. Designs to decorate the sides of the card.  The embossing folder I used for the background is from Sizzix “Stars & Swirls” (I love that folder – I think it even works for baby cards).

Last year I provided short instructions on how to make a “tee pee” card.  Click here to go to the instructions.  I’ve used this style of card because it reminds me of a Christmas tree.  Here it is unfolded –

The sentiment is a Whimsy stamp.

For some good news for me (hope it doesn’t sound like I’m bragging) I won the Octopode Factory Challenge “Animals”.  I was sooo happy ‘cos I hadn’t won a challenge this year.  Look here!

Bye for now,
