Here's a card I made using one of the sets…Make a Mitten…that will be featured by one of the designers during Card "Create"tions!  I can't wait to see what Debbie does with it!  I love how it has a coordinating punch!



Here are the details on my card!

  1. The base card is 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half for the base card.
  2. The 4 x 5 1/4 layer is Baja Breeze.
  3. I cut a 2 x 5" strip of red print from Snow Festival Designer Paper.
  4. I cut one of the square prints from Snow Festival DSP and covered up the center printed image with a 2 1/2" circle punched from Whisper White.
  5. I stamped the greeting from More Merry Messages in Cherry Cobbler in the center of the circle.
  6. I stamped two of the mittens in Lucky Limeade, then again in Baja Breeze, punching them both out with the Mitten punch and adhering the cuff and mitten top over the Lucky Limeade ones.
  7. I tied the Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine in a double bow and adhered with a mini glue dot on the top of the mitten cuffs.
  8. Finally, I added some rhinestone jewels along the edge of the designer paper.


Hope you like my mitten card!  I love the color combination!  Don't forget to sign up NOW!
