Winter Mittens

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you had a lovely Valentine's Day! Hubs hurt his back over the weekend so there wasn't much Valentine-ing going on around here. Just a whole lot of me doing chores for both of us, lol. I tell you, I really love this Winter Wonder Words bg. And I love making winter cards. I even like the winter season..I really wish we had one this year. With no fall to speak of & hardly even a sweater day so far, I feel like a bank teller in an old movie..."I've been robbed!!" But I made a winter card anyway. And I used the colors from the Splitcoast color challenge. I think they make a really cheerful winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper, so I made my dp on the coral/watermelon bg & mint bg. 
I stamped the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamped them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then w/ the white ink, slightly offset. The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s. 

Here's a look at the inside, w/ the entire greeting.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Fun card Julie!! Great layout and wonderful colors! Those mittens look like they took a lot of patience to put together with 4 different colors!!

I get your desire to have a bit of winter - I LOVE a good winter storm like we had last week. Wish I could share it with you!
