Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas - Warm Clothes




Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

I choose to make a card today!! Here is my card....


Here is the supplies I used to make this card...

- Simply Charmed Cricut cart (mittens)
- Sophisticated Cricut cart (banner)
- twine from The Twinery
- argyle embossing folder
- Recollections paper
- Recollections brad
- white flock (mitten cuffs)
- 'baby, it's cold outside' sentiment from Christmas Wishes by Pink By Design
- white gelly roll pen for faux stitches

I like to keep my cards super simple, since I know they will probably end up in the trash within a week or two.... I cut the mittens from Simply Charmed then "stitched" around them using my white pen. I then embossed them with my argyle folder. I used my ZIG 2-way glue pen to adhere flock to the cuffs of the mittens. Then I used a piece of twine to make the mittens look like they are tied together. I stamped my sentiment onto the banner and used some pop dots to give it some dimension. 

I hope you liked my simple card!!!
