I wasn't going to buy……..

the mitten punch!!!!!! 

How often have we said that? "I wasn't really fussed for the XXXX until I saw a card using it"!! Well that happened to me yesterday after our monthly training Sally Jo stayed a bit longer as she had got to my house a while after everyone else as she has further to travel!! 

Well little did I know but she brought a box of items that I don't own yet so we "had a little play" and came up with a few projects!!! I had luckily borrowed another new stamp set from the Annual Catalogue launched on 1st October that another friend had got given as a gift last year!

I used a brown kraft gift bag and Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze!

We used the Two Tags die and the new Lacy Brocade Embossing folder and inked the folder with Crumb Cake ink before rolling it through the Big Shot.

The mittens were punched out from the Snow Festival Designer Papers (please check back later for a share I am doing) and we used some of the new cotton ribbon that you can easily stamp on and create customised ribbons!

Hope you like our efforts! I might show you a matching card tomorrow!!
