An Early Christmas Card - Mistletoe

Picture 217
I don’t stamp very often and when I do I have to keep it very, very simple as I am so caggy handed.
I love using pearls on my cards and this small stamp from The English Stamp Company is perfect for doing just that.
I stamped the mistletoe onto a square of pale cream card and then carefully tore the edges to give a ragged effect.
I sewed round the edges, rather haphazardly, with gold thread, using one of those small battery operated hobby sewing machines. To finish the design I made another slightly larger square, sewing round it too.  The two squares were then stuck together and added to a card blank.
