Cosy Mittens

I'm sharing another little batch of Christmas cards with you today.  I'm liking the CAS style right now plus embossed backgrounds, so today's design incorporates both these styles.

I embossed the front of C6 base cards with this fun Christmas folder.  Using a set of stamp and dies from Sizzix/HeroArts I stamped the cosy mittens image using SU! inks in Raspberry Ripple and Baja Breeze then cut out with the matching dies.  I joined each pair of mittens with a length of twine and added a touch of Stardust Stickles on the cuffs.

The sentiment and snowflake stamps are from the same set as the mittens and sentiment .  Using a SU! punch I cut out scalloped circles from white card and stamped the sentiment and snowflakes using black ink.  Finally adding a touch of Stickles on each snowflake for added sparkle. 

The mittens and sentiment were attached using Pinflair glue to give them a little dimension.

Thanks for taking the time to visit I hope you liked today's project.
