Trim the Tree With Mistletoe...

Mistletoe Snowhill, that is!! I just had to make another card with one of Amy's new fairies - Mistletoe Snowhill (her new line of stamps - Sweet November Stamps - is now being put out by CC Designs and are available at All That Scraps!!) I used the Mojo Monday 115 sketch.

This time I did a teeny bit of altering by wiping away the mistletoe in her hand and drawing a Christmas ornament instead. I decorated her dress and the ornaments with lots of Taylors Tiny Twinkles! Oh, and I was SO proud of myself for the tree! I'm sure I'm probably not the first to do this, although I don't recall seeing it anywhere before - I used my Stampin Up Scallop Circle Punch and Large Oval Punch to make the tree! I punched 3 scalloped circles and marked a "center" on each circle between 2 scallops. For the top layer of the tree I marked 5 scallops away from the "center" on each side then lined up the oval punch with the center and the marking on one side and punched. I then repeated that for the other side. The other two layers were done the same way, only the marks were 4 scallops away on the second layer and 3 away on the bottom layer. The top layer was the most difficult because you don't have much to hold onto for your second punch but the other two layers were pretty easy!
