Less is More Week 184 - Foliage

And not only that, it's also one layer week too over at Less is More - double trouble. But, I immediately thought of a little SU stamp from the 'Easy Events' set and this was the result (times two 'cos I made two the same):
I used:

- 6" x 4" tent style white card blank

- using a square Spellbinders die, and a pricking mat underneath for some 'give', I ran a ball ended embossing tool round the inside of the die to emboss the square 

- SU's 'Easy Events' stamp set, the tiny mistletoe and sentiment stamp - which I cut apart

- the mistletoe sprig was stamped using SU's 'Certainly Celery' and coloured using a green Whispers pen

- sentiment was stamped using a Tim Holtz 'Festive Berries' distress marker to colour the rubber, and using the same red marker, I drew a little bow at the top of the mistletoe sprig

- rounded off bottom corner using We Are Memory Keepers Corner Chomper and then just added pearls for the mistletoe berries

Job done!
