Who doesn't love cozy mittens in the winter? The mittens in the Celebrate with Tags stamp set by Stampin' Up! has mittens that look exactly like you would picture some handknit mitts from Gramma. I also like that the Celebration Tags dies coordinate and cut out the mittens. I'm not a big fan of fuzzy cutting.
Check out another card featuring the Celebrate with Tags stamp set HERE. It is a bright and cheerful card in non-traditional colours.
Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen are the best for Christmas colours. The Lights Aglow 6x6 Designer Series Paper has pretty patterns. This card actually features two of the plainest patterns but they work to highlight the mittens and give a cozy feeling to the card. This is an easy card to case using your favourite colours and patterned paper. It is quick enough to use as a design for making a lot of cards.
If you wanted to further simplify this card, you could use Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Evening Evergreen cardstock with an embossing folder. I do think the patterned paper gives a pretty look.
No full tutorial today but here are some measurements to help you out:
- Card Base: Basic White cardstock 8½" x 5½" scored at 4¼"
- Layer 1: Cherry Cobbler pattern - 4" x 5¼"
- Layer 2: Evening Evergreen pattern - 3"x 3"
- Basic White circle embossed with the Wintry 3D Embossing folder ~3"
- Layer circle onto scalloped circle slightly larger than 3"
Stamp the mittens in Cherry Cobbler and then use your Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine to die cut them out. Pop them up with Stampin' Dimensionals and attach Baker's twine to the back. Complete the card with a couple of pearls.
