(s)mitten by shaped cards

we're still making cards that are not square or rectangular at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you're still invited to join the fun. here's what i made this week:

patterned paper, flower layers: basic grey; velvet flower trim: doodlebug; velvet leaves: 7 gypsies; sentiment sticker: echo park; felt snowflake, lace, button, twine: from my stash; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, scor-tape by sookwang, gluedots
here's another example of choosing a clipart image and re-sizing it to make the perfect card. in this case, the mitten is about 6" tall and nearly 4" wide at the thumb. yes, i raided my treasured hoard of classic basic grey papers, both of these papers are from the dasher  line, i believe and the fabric flower layers are from blitzen and aspen, i think. 

i layered up all of my design elements to make the prettiest and most fanciful mitten imaginable, then i affixed it to a folded piece of red cardstock and c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y cut around the whole thing to make a card that is mitten-shaped but does actually open in a traditional way.

be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's card, then why not link up something fun of your own?
