Holiday Greenery for Twofer

Hi Everybody,

I have not played in the Twofer challenge in a while, due to time constraints. But I made sure I am not missing it this time. 

I wanted to use this wonderful die I recently won in an Instagram give-away by Poppy Stamps. Thank you so much Poppy Stamps - I love this little beauty!

Here are closer views of my cards:

This actually was the second card as I was not willing to throw out the negative die cut I got from cutting the white sprig for my first card. Thought it might look nice adding some vellum sprigs. It think it does. Added a gold thread and selective gold foiling. Also gold foiled the sentiment (Hero Arts).

I just die cut the mistletoe in 3 different colors and tied them together with a red string. Added the sentiment and stars (Mama Elephant), as well as Washi tape. Added a bit of Stickles.

Happy Twofing!

"Twofing"...great new term...I like it almost as much as these two cards. That prize die really came in handy and it looks fabulous on both cards. The black/white is so striking and the more traditional one is equally fantastic. Think I smell a winner.

Both the cards are so gorgeous! That certainly is a wonderful die and you used it so well too.

Great to see you back twofing with us, Cornelia! And I'm loving that mistletoe die!! You've created a rich and classy Christmas card with your black, white, vellum, and gold, and you've also shown us a more rustic, but still elegant format with your second card. I love how you wrapped three mistletoe together with a red bow, added the golden border of trees, and I think the smattering of stars is very smart!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Hugs, Darnell

That's such a lovely die, Cornelia ... these are both gorgeous! Using the negative space against the black was a brilliant idea, it's so dramatic ... and you softened it wonderfully with the delicate vellum sprig and touch of gold! The traditional colours on your second card show off the mistletoe in quite a different guise ... the kraft with the red twine add warmth and there's a whimsical touch in the scripty sentiment and stars! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
