Mitten Make and Take

Good morning! Yeah its the weekend! I get to go and sit down at dancing for a whole 2.5 hours!!! Perfect!!

Last night I did a workshop at the lovely Rebecca's house - it was a lovely crafty night and Rebecca had asked if I would do a card with the Mitten Punch as a make and take ( a make and take is a card that all the ladies at the party make, and then take home!)

The wonderful Jenni Pauli from Germany inspired me with her lovely card HERE and I asked her permission if she minded me using a similar design and she said yes! Vielen Dank Jenni!

The card uses the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set which are stamped in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Pool Party and the sentiment is from Greetings of the Season

I ran the mitten through the Square Lattice folder which gave it the knitted look and then added some linen thread. The ladies also added some little dots of Dazzling Details in Silver.

I then showed the ladies an upgraded version. On this version I have added an extra layer of Midnight Muse card and then ran the folder through the Petals a Plenty folder after I had done the stamping.

What you can see on the next photo is the shimmer treatment I gave the card! I squirted it with the Smooch Spritz spray in Vanilla Shimmer, which I love and the ladies all loved too! 

This card also had some rhinestones added to it too for extra sparkle.

And here are both the cards together!

Thank you Rebecca for a lovely evening and to all the ladies for your orders and the fun we had!

See you tomorrow! Keeeeeeep dancing!
