Welcome to Day 3 of the Holiday CAS-ual Fridays Release! Today we're showing off the new Mistletoe Fri-Dies! This awesome set coordinates with the previously released Mistletoe and Holly stamp set. Here's how I was inspired:
I knew I wanted the Mistletoe to be hanging in a window. The Bubble Box Fri-Dies were perfect for this! I started by attaching my plaid background paper to a white piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock. Then I used the 3rd smallest Bubble Box die and cut a window through both layers... easy peasy! Then I took my card base and added a layer of design paper on the inside of the front and used the 2nd largest die to cut a larger window into the base-rather than trying to line up the smaller window I thought this would be easier and look cool on the inside... which I think it does! And I was able to use the actual die cuts from both windows on the inside of the card as well!
I just made sure to line up the red plaid so that it fit perfectly in the window by adhering back in it's place while the front was closed over.
I stamped, die cut and colored the Holly from the stamp set and attached it to the top of the window with a piece of thin foam tape and stamped the Mistletoe and Holly sentiment on the "inside" and stamped with Versamark and heat embossed it in white on the front. I was going to leave it like this when I thought of making a belly band so that you'd see the first part of the sentiment first and then the rest of the sentiment when you removed the band.
I used two layers of cardstock and some pretty washi tape for the center. And then I used the 4 Petals and Jumping Jacks Fri-dies to create some poinsettias for the front of the band.
And I love them just as much as I thought I was going to when I had this idea! I added some Nuvo drops to the centers for good measure.
A few sequins in the same bright green as the poinsettia flowers and I was done! I love this one! I hope you do too!
I'm playing along again with Anything Goes over at Double Trouble Challenges and Twisted Thursday at the Outlawz! I'm also playing along with the Christmas challenge over at Fab N Funky!
Edited to add: This one was a winner over at Fab N Funky!
