Merry Christmas Mittens

Earlier this month was National Mitten Day, which gave me a 
great opportunity to make several Christmas designs cards using the cute little mittens from the Whimsy Stamps, Bundled Up Die Set (WSD316), 
For todays card, the background is a snowflake embossing folder with the inside inked using Stampin Up Bashful Blue before running it through the machine. 
Tiny blue brads were added to the corners, then red crochet thread to make the clothes line.  The little mittens were easy to die cut from lots of scraps being generated by all my Christmas cards!  
Some of this design I sent to families that had three children, carefully writing each child's name above a pair of mittens. 
Merry Christmas was also stamped with Bashful blue and mounted on a scrap of blue paper. Then the entire card top was mounted a kraft card base.

I'll be posting this card on the following sites - where I invite you to view other cards and projects for ideas.
and on my personal site, Not Just Scraps.

Thank you for stopping by and following by blog. Your comments are welcomed.
