Mistletoe & Holly – Paper Pumpkin Play Date

November 12, 2020

The NOVEMBER 2015 – MISTLETOE & HOLLY kit was a favorite.  Mostly because it was red (Cherry Cobbler) & green (Old Olive).  Have I mentioned before that I am a real red & green girl when it comes to Holiday colors?



Truly keeping it clean and simple, this is a minimalist card.  The mini trees and the oval were cut from the original kit’s Mistletoe and Holly die-cut scrap leftovers.  Nothing goes to waste.  The Cherry Cobbler mat is cut from one of the kit’s envelopes.  The little scrap strip is from one of the original card bases.  A little texture is added with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and embossing the sentiment in Whisper White.



Noel is one of my best loved Holiday sentiments and, for this card, I clear color embossed it in Cherry Cobbler.  I punched a few tags with the Jewelry Tag Punch (retired) from the die-cut scrap.  I chose to add the Merry sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set (retired) in embossed White.  The original card base – Old Olive stripes on the vertical mimic a Forest.  The Pine Tree and Snow Bank(s) were die-cut with the Pine Woods Dies in Basic Gray and Whisper White.  I anchored the Basic Gray tree in snow which I sponged in Smoky Slate.

The Original Kit:

If you still have this kit around, I hope I gave you a little inspiration.  If so, post the card(s) you make on my Facebook Post: https://www.facebook.com/theinquespotstudio so we can all see your creativity.

I really like how these cards turned out.  Do you?  Let me know what you think.  Post a comment.  I would love to hear from you!

Cheers, Jolanda
