Hi folks...the count down continues to Christmas!!! Today I am up at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog again. So excited to be joining in with GSLC girls! Today I have an old fashion mitten ornament and super dimensional Holiday card to share. First up my ornament using the Mitten Mini Album.
I started by tracing my mitten onto pattern paper. I used some gorgeous plaid paper from Authentique. I love the homespun quality...perfect for my mitten.
Than cutting it out and adhering it onto the chipboard mitten. I sanded and distressed the edges a bit.
Gather up the GSLC goodies you want to use to add personality. I decided to use a fun Victorian image to pair with the Windows 4 Panel set. I also used the Snowflake Shape Set. I inked my chipboard pieces with a bit of white ink and aged them lightly. I wanted to keep the kraft color but add a bit of white for a Winter appearance.
I made some handmade paper fringe using some vintage crepe paper. I inked the edges for an aged look. I wound some twine through the edge so the mitten can be hung or tied to a package this holiday.
I started adding some goodies to the top of my mitten...adding seam binding, pinecone, berries, and greenery.
Next I layered my Victorian family onto my snowflakes.
Last but not least I added a sentiment using the Words & Phrases 1 set. I added some faux snow and some rhinestones and was done!
Here it is done! All ready to hang on a tree or tie to a pretty package.
