Serendipity Stamps - Super Simple Christmas

This week's challenge over at Serendipity Stamps is Super Simple Christmas.  So, I made a simple tag.  The only embellishment is the ribbon!  I stamped the mistletoe in Memento on Neenah Natural White and colored it with Copics and a white gel pen.  For a aged look I color distressed the edges with a Holtz blender tool and matted it in black cardstock.  For a final touch I added a little glitter to the berries.  Simple! Finished size is 5 1/8 x 3 1/4.
For an extra bonus I made this not-as-simple card just because I LOVE this framed holly stamp!  I made sure my striped papers were going in different directions.  The holly frame was cut out by hand and matted with white.  Again, the berries are highlighted with glitter glue.  
Finished size is 4 5/8 x 4 7/8.
