Christmas Mittens

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you're ready for a recovery weekend after Labor Day! My card today is based on one I saw somewhere (Pinterest? Maybe?) I don't even know how long ago, but it had mittens & a piece of corrugated paper. I had one of those coffee cup wrappers & I thought it might look good here. So I stamped the snowflakes & splatter on a white front using corduroy distress ink then attached the card board. The mittens were a little trickier..I have a mitten punch, but it was nowhere near big enough. I punched 2 mittens out of a piece of scrap kraft c/s, put them on the copier & blew them up about 200% then cut those out to use as templates for my white mittens w/ kraft colored cuffs. Ahhh...perfect size! I also stamped the cuffs w/ the woven plaid border & embossed a snowflake on each mitten before adding them & some twine to join them. 
The greeting was stamped w/ sepia Versafine & I used a couple of earth tone Tombow markers to color. The bottom was cut w/ a die & I hand cut around the top. Here's a look at the inside. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
