Mistletoe & Dove - Stampin' Up! Banner Year

    Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone has had a relaxing weekend so far!  We've had some downtime ourselves in between yard work and sports.  We'll be easing into Monday with an early bedtime I think!

  My card today was made using the Color Throwdown challenge which is green, white and kraft.  My card photographed kind of weirdly (it seems to have a weird green tint) but in person I think it's a cute look.


 A Crumb Cake card base starts this card with another layer of Crumb Cake with the corners rounded and stamped with a few of the Snowflake Wishes snowflakes in Crumb Cake ink.  The sentiment from Banner Year is embossed in white for it to show up a bit better.

  I had the larger Whisper White label already cut in my pile of rejected card parts so I used that to build up for the focal image.  A Garden Green banner comes next.  Then I stamped the Smoky Slate dove holding a few sprigs of what I'm calling mistletoe in Garden Green.  I cut that out with another of the Tasteful Label dies and popped it up with dimensionals.

  I used up some more of the long retired candy dots on the larger label and then used some small adhesive pearls on the sprigs for the mistletoe berries.

  Another card added to the Christmas stash!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
