Mitten Season - Stampin' Up! Many Mittens Framelits

  It's hard to think ahead to Christmas when the temperatures are still in the 80s and everything is still lush and green but I've been pulling out my new Christmas sets to just get some samples made to show my stampers and to get a head start on filling up my Christmas card boxes.

  Today's card is a super simple card with only a tiny bit of stamping but it's a great way to show off the Many Mittens framelits and the adorable knitted look.

  The card base is Smoky Slate and I embossed the big Winter Wonder snowflake off to the side.  The knitted detail mittens are die cut in Pool Party cardstock and then backed with solid die cut mittens in Whisper White cardstock.  The top mitten is popped on dimensionals.  I added a rhinestone to the center of each and put a baker's twine bow on the edge of one.

  The senitment is from the carry over set Christmas Pines (in the annual catalog) and is stamped in Versamark and then embossed in white.

  While I didn't use any of the Smitten Mitten stamp set stamps on this card they are adorable and really go well with the coordinating framelits for so many different looks and they are 10% off when you buy them as a bundle!  This is a great set for winter cards and not just Christmas; think after Christmas thank yous, winter birthdays, a head start on Valentine's day (there are hearts in the set and the word "smitten"!).  

  I will definitely be using this suite often in the coming months.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
