CAS-ual Fridays #178 - Christmas in July

Hey it's Christmas in July over at CAS-ual Fridays!  Six more months until that holiday rolls around, and it's never too early to start making those cards!

I'm so happy with the way this card came out.  I started by stamping the mistletoe image onto white cardstock and masking paper.  I fussy cut the masking paper and masked the image.  Then I stamped those rectangles in red and green inks.  I removed the mask and colored the image.  I cut the piece and mounted it onto red cardstock.  This was mounted on fun foam.  I stamped the sentiment below the focal point.  The mistletoe was covered in glossy accents and I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops around the sentiment.  And that main panel was sprayed with shimmer.
I used this sketch which from CAS(E) this Sketch, but the challenge is over.  I just thought it was the perfect sketch for what I wanted to create with the mistletoe!
You can see more from the CAS-ual Fridays design team on the CAS-ual Fridays blog.
