Scandinavian Mitten

It's Merry Monday time again and this week the challenge is to make a card using mittens.






I didn't think I had any mitten stamps and wasn't feeling up to making a shaped card, so I looked through my stamp inventory and actually found several stamps featuring mittens.  I chose to go with Scandinavian Season, which is NBUS (hangs head in shame as it retired a few years ago)



This is a very clean and simple card.  The mitten and the greeting are stamped in Midnight Muse and embossed in Clear EP.  There is a very fine Midnight Muse frame around the Whisper White and that is all layered onto a Whisper White card base.

I really like the simplicity and white space on this card.

Head on over to Lesley's blog to see what other mitten creations the DT have come up with.

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Scandinavian Season; Christmas Greetings
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Midnight Muse
Ink:  Midnight Muse
Accessories:  Clear EP

Cheers
Karren
