Christmas in July

Today, I am sharing another Christmas card made for this year's collection.
Since there are quite a few 'Christmas in July' challenges running this month,
I'm hoping this will get me making a start on mine.

After cutting the mittens in red card, I then glued each one to white card and cut
around the edge. I used 3D foam pads to adhere them to the base card, and used the
snowflakes from the mittens to decorate the waste on this one!

Products used:-
Winter Mittens die - Purchased from eBay
Crafts-Too Embossing Folder - Snowdrops
Hero Arts Stamp C2856 - Christmas Greetings Message
