MC Nov/14 - Mittens - Let it Snow

 I've been itching to do a card with mittens... Then there was the Card Maker Magazine challenge calling for flocking... a match made for heaven...

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Stamped the circle quote ("Snowflakes are Butterflies..." 6pce set) Using Distress "Festive Berry" and touching with "Mowed Lawn" then misting with water.

Used a snowflake embossing folder (Sheena Douglas) and my hard rubber mallet to emboss where I wanted... Sponged "Tumbled Glass" around the edges.

Hand cut a pair of mittens. I had some snowflake release papers on my desk from a previous project, so used one of them as a mask and sponged over it with "Worn Lipstick". Applied Quickie Glue in the snowflake and sprinkled with glitter (eCraft Designs "Warm Diamonds"). Trimmed a piece of Sookwang tape for the cuff and applied white flocking. Tied a couple bows with a burgundy toned narrow ribbon and adhered to each mitten cuff, then adhered a ribbon linking both. Adhered to card front.

On the inside, stamped the "Merry Christmas" Snowflakes (2 pce set) using "Salty Ocean" & misting with water. Stamped the "Let it Snow" with "Chipped Sapphire" also misting with water. Sponged some blue around the edges.

Calligraphy stamps by Quietfire Design.

Love all the techniques and your sentiment is great. I would love to know how you use a rubber mallet with an embossing folder. Do you hit it hard to make the impressions? Thanks for sharing at Love to Scrap!
