And now for my project:


I created this 3x6" card using the Mistletoe papers and stamps from Close to my Heart.  The edges of the papers are brushed with Cranberry ink.  The Christmas tree is stamped on New England Ivy cardstock and colored with markers.  I used brads to make a couple of the ornaments stand out on the tree.  The lights, ribbon and ornaments are glazed with Liquid Glass (another of my favorite toys).  Twine runs across the bottom of the card.
