Ok, I know there isn't really blue mistletoe in real life, but I just couldn't resist trying out the Create-in-Quads Mistletoe set with Uncharted Mariner distress oxide ink! And I think I LOVE the results!

I started out by taking out some pre-cut 8x10.5 Sugar Cube cardstock from Taylored Expressions. With the Create-in-Quads Mistletoe set, I stenciled some Juniper ink for the first layer.

Next, I used the coordinating Balsam ink from Pigment Craft Co. for the second layer. Both of these colours have a bit of a bluish undertone that I thought would pair nicely with Uncharted Mariner.

For the third layer, I lightly inked some Uncharted Mariner distress oxide ink for the berries. It is SO pretty - can you tell I LOVE creating with this colour?!

For the final stencil layer, I chose to use some Fairy Dust Stencil Paste from Lawn Fawn for the berry accents. I love the subtle shimmer it leaves.

To finish off my cards, I mounted each panel onto some Peapod cardstock. I added in a sentiment from Modern Holiday Greetings. So many more cards to add to my stash - yay!
