This Smitten Mittens card is perfect for Christmas, Winter, Valentine’s Day, or any occasion during this entire season! I just love the soft colors and hint of bling!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I stamped the heart stitching at the top and bottom from the Smitten Mittens Stamp Set. I used Powder Pink Ink. Then, I started the layers with Powder Pink measuring 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. At the top, I layered on a piece of Champagne Foil measuring 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and then Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Paper (3″ x 3″). Using a nice 3″ square for the Designer Paper makes perfect use of the 12″ x 12″ sheet! I love not having scraps left over because I’m not the best at using them up later.
For the greeting at the bottom, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 1-1/4″ x 3-1/4″. Next, I stamped the mittens and greeting in Powder Pink. These are all from the Smitten Mittens Stamp Set. I’m not going to lie, it took me a few minutes to make sure I was stamping the mittens correctly and not backwards. 🙂 After stamping, I added this to the bottom portion of the Powder Pink. Using some Powder Pink Ribbon, I tied it around the spot where the 2 papers meet and into a knot. Then I added this piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little texture!
I love the soft look of this. I think it would look stunning in Fresh Fig or Elegant Eggplant as well. It makes a great winter card for any occasion! What would you use this card for? Winter? Christmas? Valentine’s Day? Change the greeting to Birthday, etc? Let me know in the comments below!
