Mittens Christmas cu 07050
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC510) is a Pinterest Board full of beautiful drinks. I was really inspired by THIS picture Audrie picked & I tried to find it on the board but gave up after the first couple of thousand pictures, lol. I think that board has no end! I was also inspired by a card I saw who knows how long ago or where that had these cute little mittens & crimped kraft paper.

Since it’s all about drinks, it’s appropriate that I had one of those coffee cup wrappers & used it for my crimped layer.  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.  Mittens Christmas inside 07052
