Christmas Mittens

Good morning crafters, Julie here.
The weather seems to have turned a little compared to recent weeks and it feels more like autumn....so here goes with another Christmas card using the cute Have A Very Mice Christmas stamp set from Hobby Art.

First I made the background using a square of super smooth card, a snowflake stencil and 
Aqua Sea Sparkle Medium, I set it aside to dry and started on the main event.

I stamped the mouse in the mitten 3 times on a scrap piece of super smooth card in Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat set with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder. Then I coloured the stamped images with various Spectrum Aqua pens (on offer on the website at the moment).

I stamped the message on a piece of co-ordinating blue card and heat set with 
WOW! Bright White embossing powder and mat and layered onto some white card (as I just so happened to have a scarp of super smooth handy!), then onto silver Mirri card. I trimmed and backed the background and matted and layered onto some silver Mirri card also.

I poked/ punched 2 holes just in from the edge of the card 2cm down from the top to hang my baker's twine line on, using 2 fluffy brads from my stash. I pegged the cut out images on my line so I could arrange them securing the images in place with a double sided sticky pad and some cosmic shimmer glue under each peg and attached the entire piece onto a 7x7 card blank. Finally I added a little Icicle Stickles to the mittens.
