Not only can you make reindeer antlers from a mistletoe cut file,
you can also make…wait for it…Mistletoe! LOL!
I used the same mistletoe file that I downloaded from Silhouette in this post, to make this pretty mistletoe. Kiss kiss!
I LOVE doing this! Take a water based ink and cover the inside (one or both inside parts) of an embossing folder. Use water based ink if you don’t want permanently stained embossing folders. Add your paper/cardstock and close the folder.
Now, just roll your embossing folder through your embossing machine. I’m using a Cuttlebug here but I love my Big Shot too. You can use any embossing machine. I actually prefer the Big Shot because it’s sturdier but the Cuttlebug is so much more portable. I really appreciate that! Here’s a link to the Sizzix Big Shot and the Cuttlebug on Amazon in case you want to check them out. Oh, I label all of my embossing folders, this one is the Victorial Cuttlebug Folder.
Here’s a post I wrote about labeling embossing folders.
Each side will give you a different look. Ink the embossed side and roll through, now try the debossed side. Cool huh? You can see that I’ve tried both sides in my finished project.
Need a video on this? Happy to help!
I decided to add a stamp (from Joy’s Life Wintery Puns) to the other end of my mistletoe. That way it could be prettily tied around a present (or tree) and have a cute sentiment.
Remember the Viva Decor pen from the reindeer post? I used it here to make the berries for the mistletoe. Those Viva Decor pearl pens come in handy!
