Day 5 -My Craft Spot Release Party

Hello all my friends, I hope you have followed along this week for the fabulous Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot, I know the design team and I have really enjoyed sharing so many inspiring projects with you, and today day 5, the inspiration continues.
We are showing a sneak peek with you of the new Mistletoe stamp set a lovely stamp set that is wonderful for your Christmas cards and projects.

Today I've created a simple country Christmas card with a patchwork background, it was fun to make.
For the patchwork background, I choose 4 patterned paper designs and cut each into 1 1/4" squares. Then cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (that was my card front size). I added a small amount of adhesive to the back of each square then placed on the piece of cardstock, some of the squares were hanging over the edge, after all the squares were stuck gently on I just trimmed the edged that hung over. 
Then using my sewing machine I stitched where each pattern paper meet, all the threads were taped on the back side. I attached the patchwork background to a folded 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock.
 I love this beautiful saying from the Miseltoe stamp set, I used a spellbinders lacy oval die for the background that I stamped on, and used a bit of Tim Holtz Antique Photo ink for the oval center before removing the die from my cut out.
 My poinsettia was cut in various sizes using Joys of the Season cricut cartridge, I inked the edges then sprayed generously using Bronze Glimmer Mist, then glued tiny yellow beads to the center of the flower.
