Warm Woolen Mittens.....

Hello everyone: Well, I have yet another Christmas card to add to my stash, believe me, I have more than enough but, you never know if I will have a last minute request from my family for a card for a teacher or friend. I will link this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.


This image is from a Power Poppy set called Bough Wow Wow, love this cozy and warm looking mittens.  I stamped the image on Strathmore watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it, I really line the outline of the melted embossing powder to add color because it stays in place without running to the next section. I used SU markers to color the image.  The sentiment is from another Power Poppy set called Merry Littles, love the little images on it.  The embossing folder is from SU and it's called Pretty Paisleys, which is on sale right now, I love it. 
I added 4 brads to the corners from my stash.

***************************************************************** 
I always finish the inside of my cards, saves a lot of time when I mail them and they look nicely finished, believe me, it's worth the few extra minutes.


The sentiment is from the Ponsettia set from Power Poppy, the mitten from Merry Littles.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Merry Monday. Use Kraft card stock and the color RED.
