Under the Tree with Peppermint Kisses

Hello Kaisercraft fans,

Emmy here today sharing another layout I’ve created using the most adorable Christmas collection – Peppermint Kisses – from Kaisercraft’s September release (available at Merly Impressions’ online store). MI-under-the-tree-web530For my background I used two 12″ pattern papers – Combi Christmas and Holly Jolly. I cut 15 x 30.5 cm panels from both pattern papers and adhered them on top of Kaisercard Snow Weave Cardstock. To hide the “stitch” between the pattern papers, I used the cut-off stirpe from Santa and Co pattern paper.

For the sarklong red stars I used glitter paste and Scattered Stars 6×6 Designer Stencil. Once  the glitter paste has dried, I sprayed some KaiserMist Spray Ink – White on top. MI-under-the-tree-det-a530 MI-under-the-tree-det-b

To decorate my picture I used a lot of different embellishments. I added pre-cut shapes from the Collectables pack and the Paper PadMI-under-the-tree-det-c MI-under-the-tree-det-d

… fussy cut images from Santa and Co pattern paper and stickers from the Sticker BookMI-under-the-tree-det-e MI-under-the-tree-det-f

I used Kaisercard Snow Weave Cardstock and Decorative Die – Texture Burlap to lighten the background behind the large Christmas tree and the Nutcracker (Santa and Co pattern paper). Then I added a smaller Christmas tree from the Flourish Pack matching the collection. MI-under-the-tree-det-gThe cute little Christmas bell button comes from the Curios pack and I added also extra rhinestones to decorate my embellishments (Rhinestones – Island LagoonRhinestones – Deep Yellow and Rhinestones – Red). MI-under-the-tree-det-h MI-under-the-tree-det-i
