Winter mittens

One of my favourite Christmas patterns is the  red and white Scandinavian inspired designs. When I saw this wrapping paper in my local Wilkinsons store I just had to have it for my card making. I used the paper for the background of this card.
The cute mittens were cut out using a Sizzix Winter Mittens die. I cut the main mittens from red card and the white top from white pearlescent card which I also added Stickles to for extra sparkle. I embossed the red section with a stripped embossing folder. Along the embossed lines I added white faux stitching and Stickles.

I added the mittens to a square embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. I also added red ribbon and a bow. This was then attached to a blue square of card and then to the card.
The circle sentiment was a Christmas die cut sentiment  from Little Claire. I added this to a circle cut with Nestabilities Lacey Circles die.
