Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I used the Smitten Mittens Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  This Christmas card is another very quick and simple one to put together.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Cherry Cobbler with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of a panel of Vellum card stock and let it dry while I worked on the other elements.

Two mittens were stamped in Garden Green onto Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut from the Many Mittens Framelits dies.  Next, I stamped and die cut two of the pretty snowflake images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set bundle.  One snowflake was stamped in Garden Green ink, the other in Cherry Cobbler ink, and each was adorned with one Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  The Vellum strip was adhered with a dot of glue where I knew the mittens would be placed, then I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the whole panel three times and tied a bow.  The mittens and the snowflake were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the art panel was adhered to the Garden Green card base with more dimensionals.

The Whisper White panel on the inside was stamped with Garden Green for the sentiment and Cherry Cobbler for the row of hearts on the bottom.  The Cherry Cobbler snowflake was adhered with liquid glue and then the panel was adhered to the card base with more glue.

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
