Glittery Mittens

Life is so crazy lately that I don't often have time to play in some of the fabulous sketch challenges out in blog-world. But.. when I saw the sketch on the MojoMonday blog this week I just had to play.

I used Snowfall and Snowfall Additions (Papertrey Ink) and lots and lots of glitter! :0)

(you can click on the pic for a closer look)

I stamped the mittens on green cardstock with matching green ink and then, before cutting them out, I ran each through my little Zyron sticker machine. THEN I cut them out, leaving the sticker paper intact. (yes, I tell you this because I completed the trial and error of doing it other ways first. Not successfully I might add. lol) After cutting them out, I pulled back just the top of the paper and covered the mitten band in red glitter. Then I pulled the paper off and *dipped* the rest of the mitten in my glitter container. ooooo' so sparklie!

The snowflakes are stamped in blue on white cardstock and cut out. Because I was covering them with blue stickles and glitter, I wasn't too concerned about perfection when cutting them out.

The papers are from the Polar Expressions collection (Imaginisce) and the ribbon is from Michaels.

I hope you're having a sparklie day!

HB, I adore this glittery card. I love mittens and I love glitter. That ribbon bow is fabulous. You have a good eye for paper selection. In other words: YOU ROCK!
