Mistletoe Greetings

Mistletoe Greetings | by karen @ carefree creations

I’ve had no Christmas spirit this year. I didn’t send cards, didn’t put up a tree, and I listened to maybe 20 minutes of music. So it should come as no surprise that this card sat on my desk for a couple weeks – all stamped and ready, just needed some tape to hold it together, lol. Better late than never? 🙂

I’m really happy with how this turned out (you may see this layout later this year as a sketch for CC&S, lol). I’m surprised at how well/true the green looks on blue paper.

I need to practice with the enamel stuff though. When I first put it on it was translucent and I thought it just needed to dry. By the time I got to the last dots the white started coming out and I realized that while I did shake the bottle, it wasn’t nearly enough. I really thought I’d be throwing out that panel, but the enamel wiped off without smearing across the card stock.

Thanks for taking a peek!
