Sparkly Mittens



















If you are looking for the Verve Thankful Hearts Blog Hop scroll down or click here.

This is for today's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge CIC35, I think this is the cutest cupcake, he looks so happy...hehee. I was drawn to the wintry feel, and the lacy snowflakes. The embossing on the main panel of my card is done with the new 5 x 7 folder called Holly Ribbon. I luv this size folder, you can stick the entire card base in there and emboss the base without having an edge that is not embossed. These 5 x 7 folders are da bomb! I decided to use the Organic Flourish Embossing Folder o the scalloped part of my card, this is one of my all time favorite folders. I adore the richness it gives it, elegant and gorgeous. I used the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Designer paper behind my mittens, this paper is the cutest. This was my first time using it, it is so whimsical. I used the Imaginisce Polar Expressions Mitten stamp, I colored the mittens with Copics and then added Crystal Stickles to the cuffs to make them glittery, I adore the cuffs of my mittens sparkly...hehehe. I also added one Zva Creative Pearl to the center of the snowflakes. This is one of the few cards I made without a sentiment, I usually do not do that. I will put one on the inside. I hope you can play along with us this week, this image gets me in the mood for snow.....I do luv the snow, but not the cold. I hope you have a blessed day and be sure to enjoy life!
