Looking at the last few cards I've made, it looks like I focus a lot of attention trying to stay warm. I'm not sure how I would endure Ohio winters without mittens and hot chocolate! Anyway, I just loved this card when I saw it on Stampinglee Yours blog and couldn't wait to CASE it for a batch of winter note cards.
I used Whisper White Card Stock on the top card and Very Vanilla on the second one. I like both equally. I punched mittens from Cherry Cobbler card stock then embossed snowflakes on them with clear embossing powder. So it didn't look like I had green cocoa, I removed the green ink from the "inside" of the mug with a q-tip then colored it with my chocolate chip marker
Again, I've used a several items from the Holiday Catalog that won't be available after tomorrow.
Stamp Sets: Make a Mitten, Scentsational Seasons
Card Stock: crumb cake, whisper white or very vanilla, cherry cobbler
Stamp Pads: gumball green, crumb cake, versa mark
Other: distressing tool, norther flurry ef, holiday collection framelits, big shot, mitten builder punch, gumball green sweater trim ribbon, glue dot, dimensionals.
Bearded Hat Pattern. I made a child hat and small beard and they were too small. . Also, the bottom of the beard is a chain, which makes it not so stretchy and therefore, a little harder to get on. Still super cute, though and warm, I bet. Fortunaly, I had enough yard to make new ones and still leave the small hat and beard in tact for a gift for a smaller guy.
