Warm Mittens Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning!


This week Kathy has challenged us to make a Christmas card using something
that would keep us warm.


I recently bought the Cable Knit Embossing Folder that's in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

It made some warm looking punched mittens from snippets of red cardstock.

I used a snippet of velvet ribbon to the cuffs and
some snow swirling around.

Check out what the rest of the Design Team has done to make you feelwarm and cozy.
 Then I hope you'll join us at Merry Monday.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Lovely card - I'm particularly drawn to the dry embossing - in two places, no less!

The furry cuffed mittens are so perfect against the lovely corner embossing.
I love the cabling on the mittens.

Ideal CAS card - sparingly but very pointedly. In your card is a huge message. Great inspiration.
