Winter Mittens

Hi, everyone! Finally got a chance to take pics of some projects I made over the weekend. It's been dark & rainy, but today the sun is out! Yay!

For my project today, I played along with 3 challenges:
Etsy Inspired 115--Queen of Tarts Cakes--I chose these cookies as inspiration
CardPatterns Sketch 91
Caardvarks gift card holders
I was immediately drawn to the cute mittens, the color combo, and the overall wintry theme.

I used a new stamp from American Crafts (aren't those mittens cute?) and new twine from The Twinery (LOVE that stuff!).

My card is standard sized (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")...

with a surprise inside!

I simply added a piece of patterned paper to the inside with sticky tape, then slid a gift card inside.

Side note: This Target gc smells like peppermint! Mmm!

Hope you like what you see!

Stamps: Wishes (American Crafts Dear Lizzy), Essential Sentiments (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Real Red, PTI white, SU pp
Ink: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snowflake, Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, Michaels ribbon, The Twinery twine, bell, dimensionals
