Give us a Kiss for Christmas....

.....under the mistletoe!

This ultra-cute image is from a Buzzcraft Die Cut Pyramage sheet available from Foil Play. To make the border, I used double sided peel offs from a kit I bought from QVC many, many years ago. First of all I positioned the corners and the motifs in the centre of each side, then foiled them with metallic green foil, then used the "waste" hearts from the centres of them in between all the green elements, and foiled them in red. The foils, too, came from Foil Play. (And yes, the green IS the same bright shiny green all round, but my flash has made it look a lot brighter at the bottom. Unfortunately Mr Sunshine hasn't come out to play today so there's no good natural light).

I'm joining in with

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - August  
And finally, because I know Hazel will pop over to comment on this post, I'd like to share a card that is nothing to do with Christmas but was inspired by (indeed copied from!) this wonderful card that Hazel shared on her own blog. Thank you Hazel for coming up with such simple yet stunning idea!

Two beautiful cards Jane! The hearts certainly don't look as if they were waste, do they?
