Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I’ve got a fun Christmas card for you today using the Smitten Mittens Bundle from Stampin’ Up! 

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens-Cardiology by Jari


The sketch was inspired by the one for Freshly Made Sketches #311FMS #311

I started with two different patterns from the Quilted Christmas DSP and added a Whisper White mat to one and a Lemon Lime Twist to the other with Liquid Glue.  Then the panels were adhered with Liquid Glue.

I used the Many Mittens Framelits Dies to cut two Whisper White mittens and two Real Red mittens, then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  Next, I wrapped a double length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around some of the Quilted Christmas Ribbon and tied a bow.  The ribbon was adhered to the back of the mittens with Glue Dots and then I adhered them to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped with Basic Black Archival ink and I used one of the dies that could be used for a mitten cuff to cut it out.

More of the ribbon was added to the bottom of my Whisper White panel by cutting a strip of Tear & Tape down the center horizontally, then to the ribbon.  The sentiment is another one from Smitten Mittens and stamped in Real Red ink.  Enjoy!
