I was so excited when I found this cute little mitten freebie from Newton’s Nook.  I colored it using my Copics and then used my Silhouette Cameo to around it leaving a large white border.  I adhered the mittens to the top of four 1-inch x 1-inch pieces of designer paper using dimensionals. 





I’ll let you in on my little secret.  To get those squares of designer paper perfectly lined up and spaced evenly on my card-front, I used my Silhouette software and drew four squares where I wanted them to be on my rectangular piece of white cardstock.  Then I changed the cutting line into a light grey line and printed that out 4 times on a piece of 8-1/2 x 11-inch white cardstock.  After printing, I placed it on my Cameo mat and cut the rectangle out.  Now I could see exactly where to place each piece of designer paper.  I added a Lawn Fawn Wintery Scripty Sayings sentiment to finish it off.

Thanks to my daughter, Kayla, who helped with the assembling of these cards!  She’s the best assistant a mom can have … my little crafty elf.





I also did a green version with a slightly different sentiment that was purchased at Michaels.




Up next is the talented and amazing Jearise!
