I promised you pink mittens...

In my last post, I mentioned that I had also made a mitten Christmas card in pink and teal. Well here it is:

This time I mixed light pink and medium pink embossing powders for my mittens. I also used the light pink embossing powder for my sentiment, which was heat-embossed on a strip of vellum. In retrospect, I wish I had used the darker pink for this. But hindsight is 20/20, right?

My white piece of cardstock was embossed with a falling snow embossing folder, and my little snowflakes were made with a Recollections punch (except for the larger one, which is an Impression Obsession die).

Here's a little closer look at those mittens. I really love how the mix of two different embossing powders adds so much texture.

I also love that the Sizzix Mittens & Snow Globe set has dies for all the stamps. It really speeds things up and they look so much better when cut with a die!

The inside of my card is pretty plain, but I did add a little sparkle to the two little snowflakes and the word "Christmas" in the sentiment, which is a Recollections stamp.

We are having some unusually warm weather here today. We've only gotten a couple of inches of snow so far, and it will be gone in the next few days with temps in the 40s. I won't be surprised if I see people outside without jackets and maybe even with shorts on this weekend. Minnesotans are like that. Whenever it's unseasonably warm - even though it's only in the 40s - they seem to think that summer clothing is in order!

I hope you're having wonderful weather wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very pretty in pink. Sweet card for a little girl. My part of Indiana finally has sunshine though cold after a week of gloom, fog, rain.

Awww that's so pretty Cheryl, love the unusual colours!
We had an awful storm this past couple of days with lashing rain and gales, so it's a lovely surprise to waken up this morning to a nice calm day with a beautiful blue sky. You can keep your snow ;)

Love the pink mittens - you are doing an awesome job on combining the embossing powders to achieve texture. We have had just a flurry or two here in MO. nothing on the ground yet.
