I made brown and pink mittens, stamping them using chocolate chip and pretty in pink ink and then punched them out using the mitten punch and I glued the pink parts of the mittens on top of my punched out chocolate chip mittens. I have the mittens placed on my card using dimensionals. I did add a tiny dot or two of glue on the twine that I have placed between the mittens. I did that to hold the twine in place and you only need one or two drops.
I used the window die to cut out the mitten background shape and I also did some faux stitching along the edge of the chocolate chip layer. I used the adorning accents edgelits for my scallop layer towards the bottom of my card. I also added a row of paper piercing at the bottom of my card. My white background layers are dry embossed using the perfect polka dot embossing folder.
I wanted to quickly give you a tip on how I made my sentiment layer. I first cut out a 3/4" strip of card stock and then I stamped my sentiment. To make the notched (banner) side of my sentiment panel I used a 1" square punch and I notched out the end. It's so easy to make banner panels this way and I never have to worry about getting the points even. If you have a larger banner simply use a large square punch, if you have a smaller, more narrow banner then use a smaller square punch.
