I used the Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set bundle to create a cute Christmas card to share with you today. The background paper is from the Christmas Around The World DSP pack and it’s on the Buy 3, Get 1 Free Sale going on through Oct 31!
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #244.
I started by adhering a panel from the Christmas Around the World DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment mitten image from the Smitten Mittens photopolymer stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I cut the image out with the coordinating Many Mittens Framelits Die. Then I cut the mitten and cuff images from Real Red card stock with dies from the Many Mittens Framelits Dies set. I placed the embossing pieces from that die set over the die cut mittens and ran them back through the Big Shot (using the same sandwich that I did cut cut the mittens) to get the embossed details on the mitten.
I adhered the solid Real Red mitten to the card front with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then added the cuff over it with Fast Fuse Adhesive. I adhered the sentiment mitten with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the first mitten. I added a touch of Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere one of the Stitched Felt Embellishments to the mitten cuff, then added two of the lightest Dapper Denim Glitter Enamel Dots and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and tree images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set in Real Red and Garden Green inks on a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.

This card turned out super cute Amy! I love the color combo, and that particular pattern of DSP looks like falling snow, a perfect backdrop for cozy mittens. I have that bundle at the top of my list for my next order, and I might have to case your card as soon as I get it 🙂

The embossing look on the left mitten is great! Your source lighting is just right to achieve the best effect on the that left mitten. Congrats on the CTS244 win!
