Bundle Up Baby

Hello and welcome!  Ity is time for another challenge at My Paper Crafting.  The challenge is to create a project that includes winter attire, mittens, boots, scarves,etc.

The card I made is 5.5 x 4 and made of Kraft paper.  I found a large set of these blank cards and envelopes at Hobby Lobby a coupleof months ago. And they were 50 % off.  I love them.  I use a snowy blue mat to top the baseof the card. The mat paper is from Oriental Trading. 

 The mittens were cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge.  The cuff of the mittens were embossed and then inked in gold.  They are inked with gold and  layered on kraft paper.  on kraft paper.  The bow at the top pf the mittens is made with paper ribbon.

I added burlap ecru ribbon to the card and topped it with the sentiment.  I got the ribbon at Hobby Lobby.  The sentiment is from the Snowman's Prayer stamp set by Robin's Creative Cottage.
And layered on a little plaid mat. This paper, as well as that for the mittens is from the Paper Studio stack The Linen Door.

I just love the colors on the card.  My intent was to use a cool color for the background and warm colors for the mittens.  I think I achieved my goal.  Please join us this week for another great challenge using a cartridge at My Paper Crafting.  I hope you have a great week!  And thanks for dropping by!
