Jenny Gropp - You are here!
It's turned a little chilly here in Atlanta... chilly for us southern folks anyway! We don't get too much true mitten weather, thankfully! But this darling mitten die makes for a cute winter card!
I cut three mittens. Two out of the solid mint card stock, one out of the polka dot paper. I used a full mitten die on the bottom. I used one mitten to just cut a cuff piece for the top. I cut a snowflake out of the polka dot layer using one of the snowflake cut out dies. I also cut the same snowflake out of white card stock and glued the white pieces back in. After I glued them all in I ran it through my vagabond machine in a folded piece of paper (using the sandwich to cut a thin die) and that compressed the papers together, giving it a very seamless look.
I used a Frost White Cats Eye to ink the edges of all the mitten layers and the sentiment oval. The mitten measures 4 1/4" x 5" which is perfect to fit in an A2 envelope.
