SUOC55 – Make a Mitten

The SUO Challenge this time is using Texture on your card!  I used mittens and my background to add the texture on my card!  The colors remind me of a pair I have in my coat closet right now!  I'm certainly not ready to pull them out yet, though.  lol!



The details on my card:

  1. Base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, folded in half.
  2. I ran a 4 x 5 1/4  layer of Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Folder.
  3. The 3 squares of Snow Festival Designer Paper are 1 1/2 x 1 3/4.
  4. I punched the mittens from Cherry Cobbler, then embossed with the Square Lattice Folder.
  5. I stamped the mitten image from Make A Mitten stamp set in Baja Breeze, then cut off the cuff and added the top of the mitten to the Cherry Cobbler punched ones.
  6. I "tied" the pairs together with some Cherry Cobber Bakers Twine.
  7. Finally, the greeting is from Family Reunion, stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Baja Breeze cardstock.


I think it gave me the look of layered texture that I wanted!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team did over on SUO Challenges, then play along!  Our Top 3 is going to win BLOG CANDY…their choice of an embossing folder!

I love this card 🙂  It just makes me want to go out and buy the mitten stamp and punch so I can make one, too.  It would be great card for a class.

Great idea to add texture to the mittens!  They feel warm to look at.

Love this color combo!  I may have to get that mitten punch yet!  This is a lovely card – as always!
