This card uses the FABULOUS set “Warm Woolen Mittens” by Becky Oehlers…brings to mind the Sound of Music song huh? Oh yeah I hear you singing it too LOL! My fave color is red and I LOVE toile so this project is right up my alley. I paper pieced the mittens with paper from Authentique’s “Festive” paper pad and distressed & inked it. The cream cs was embossed with an embossing folder then inked as well, I tried to emboss it with a sweater-like pattern to bring more texture into the card. The mitten cuffs got Stickles for sparkle & bling. I used some of fave Bakers Twine to hang the mittens with.
The second card I used “Lots of Letters” by Melanie Muenchinger to create graphic crossword like card that happened TOTALLY by accident LOL (dontcha’ love that). I had actually put letters on block to create a fun corner-like border on the white Gina K cardstock. Once I started I realized it created a HEART…ahahahahaha so I went with it! The heart was done with a Spellbinder die and I kept it pretty simple. Since Valentines Day is the next big Holiday I figured this would work perfectly for anyone. Hard to see but I dotted Viva Décor Glitter Pen around the heart for a bit of subtle sparkle...everyone's gotta have some sparkle yes??? LOL!
