Make a Mitten Christmas Card

Is this month crazy for you or is it just me?  It's only 5 days into the month and I can't believe how busy I am and all the things yet to do!!  And about half of it is holiday stuff.  The rest of it is everything else!  I'd love to be caught up on things so I can have a moment to form a complete thought!!! LOL

Ok, lets talk about my card for a few paragraphs here!!  After all that is why the picture is on this post!!!  

Today I thought I would play with the mitten punch.  I love it when there's a punch to match a stamp set.  How simple it makes card making!!  Isn't this card bright and festive looking?  It makes me feel happy when I look at it!

I stamped the mittens on Very Vanilla card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I punched out the ends of the mittens using Wild Wasabi card stock.  I set them in place on a piece of Very Vanilla that was textured with the Dot embossing folder.  

The decorative background papers are from the Be of Good Cheer pack.  I'm almost out of paper from that pack.  I wasn't all that fond of it but I did manage to almost use it all up!!  I don't know if it just grew on me or for lack of other papers it got used.  

The words are from the Chock Full of Cheer set.  That also has a cute mitten in it and the punch works with it as well!  

And I cheated on the glitter paper.  I used some pretty wrapping paper I got at Michael's.  I just cut it to size and glued it on the card stock.  I didn't have any of the Stampin' Up! red glitter paper left.  Either that or it's misplaced!!  My workroom is in such a state of chaos right now.  I need to spend a few minutes and pick things up and put things back where they belong.  I had better get a move on that too because I have stampers coming over on Tuesday!!!  It doesn't give me a whole lot of time to get the other things done that are higher priority!!! YIKES!!!  I need a break! LOL

I hope you liked this card. I had fun making it.  I LOVE lots of layers and this one sure has that!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
