Meet Me Under The Mistletoe---Merry Monday Challenge #102

Merry Mondays is back at work in challenging me to think outside my stamping box.  I don't own a single mistletoe stamp in my vast stamp collection.  So I'm back to using the greatest Christmas present my hubby could have ever bought me...Silhoutte Cameo.

I combined two mistletoe downloads from the Silhoutte store to make my card this week.

I used red and green card stock from my local scrapbooking store and Gina K's "Pure White" card stock, Stampin' Up's "Cherry Cobbler" bakers twine and the designer paper is from Bo Bunny's "Rejoice Collection" 6x6 pack.

After the idea came together, it was pretty easy.

I am, by the way, hoping for advice from other Cameo owners.  I'm having an issue with the paper going off kilter.  I make sure the paper is loaded straight, but it doesn't stay straight when it starts cutting.  It doesn't happen all the time, but more than I think it should.  Has anyone else had this issue?  What am I doing wrong?  Help if you can.  Thank you!

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to head over to Merry Monday Christmas Challenge to see all of the beautiful mistletoe cards.
