I followed the advice of Pam Sparks (Expressions with Heart) and die-cut three sets of the mittens from Pacific Point cardstock. I ran one set through my Big Shot with the embossing folder. I then glued the three layers together with the embossed layer on top ... this makes the die-cut thick (more like the thickness of chipboard) so that it really stands out.
I cut another set of mittens from Certainly Celery cardstock and then cut off the cuff from each one. I added glue to the cuffs and then wound Honeydew twine around and secured the ends at the back. I mounted the cuffs on top of my mittens using sticky strips to hold them securely.
I printed the sentiment from my computer onto Whisper White cardstock, cut it to size and then mounted a piece of Denim twine to the card front using a glue dot to secure underneath the knot at the top. I mounted the mittens on top of the twine, popping them up with dimensionals to add depth.
Fun and easy card to make!
