Brrr... get those mittens out and more...

Good morning! Ok, I have to say that I just love this card I'm sharing with you. I really enjoyed the whole mitten theme the other day and I really wanted to make another mitten card.

I used some Pink Paislee paper that I just received from Mandy the other day. I used my mitten template and cut my cardstock and then cut another layer of the printed paper. Then I took my ruler and and drew lines across my mitten so I could see where to sew. Don't look to closely, my tension was all off... I then covered it with my beloved Kaisercraft Rhinestones in 3 different colors and 3 different sizes at all the intersections where my seams crossed. Then, I had to do the whole paper chenille look again - thank you, thank you Lori McCroskey, becasue I can't get enough of that look. Its white Mulberry paper that is sewn on and then cut fringe like and then stylishly "fluffed". I used the same thing for my cookie box -->HERE<--, but Lori's blog Clearly iStamp is where I originally saw the technique. Click -->HERE<-- for her tutorial. I finished my card with a bit of ribbon and a super cute stamped image of a snowman from Unity Co.'s stamp set called Bitty Christmas Tags. I got this set from Limelight and it has really been one of my go to sets this season.

Katie
I told you that you rocked a long time ago - and you never disappoint.
I am sorry I don't come around much. But events of life prevent it.
