Warm Wishes - CR84FN43

It's time for another wonderful color challenge at the CR84FN Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much to those who played along with this past challenge.  The colors for the next two week challenge are Green, Tan and Brown.

Since I still have a lot of Christmas cards left to create, I used this weeks colors to create a cute Mitten card. I used the Winter Mitten Template (also available as a PDF), cutting the template with the eCraft, from Kraft and Vanilla card stock.


I embossed the mitten using the Texture Fades Snowflake Embossing folder, and the cuff with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder. The snowflakes are highlighted with White Distress Stain, once dry, I stamped the small snowflake from Our Daily Bread Designs Peace and Joy set in Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, then sponged the edges of both the mitten and cuff.  My friend Sue, recently sent me some of the Tim Holtz Pine Cone Die Cuts, and I thought they'd be fun to embellish the mitten.  Once the pine cones were assembled, I added some Rock Candy Stickles.  I added a little tag using the sentiment from ODBD's Warm Wishes set and some Zva Creative Pearls.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Gathered Twigs, Peeled Paint, Distress Stain - White, Walnut, Peeled Paint, Antique Linen
Card Stock - Vanilla, Kraft, Chocolate
Other - Seam Binding, Zva Creative Pears, Word Window Punch, Texture Fades Folder, Cuttlebug Folder, Big Shot, eCraft, Ink Blending Tool, Heat Gun, Trinket Pin, Pop Up Glue Dots, Creations by AR Mitten Set Template, 3L Dimensionals
