Merry Mistletoe!

 "A Handmade Christmas" project,
using your Verve stamps,
of course!

 I love the way the "Leafy Sprigs" die works with the "Bloom and Grow" stamps to make a perfect mistletoe branch! I simply cut and stamped 7 of the larger sprigs, and layered them with pop dots between to give it dimension. I wanted berries with some "umph" too, so I used round pearl buttons I had saved from an old sweater that had long ago been discarded.  I think it came out really nice.  I won't mind at all hanging this up over the entry during the holidays!  Off to my closet to find more buttons!  LOL!
