Gearing Up for the Holidays

The title of my post this morning just sounds wrong! I can't believe that ALL the holidays are just around the corner.  It doesn't seem possible.  I feel like we just did it. This must mean my Summer went by WAY too fast and I've had WAY too much fun. 

This card is super simple to duplicate and uses lots of fun new products from the Holiday Mini.  One of my favorites was the Designer Series Paper called Snow Festival.  I love all the patterns in this package and my favorite is the houses.

Super cute, isn't it?  You can find the Snow Festival in the Holiday Mini.  It's part of a product suite called Snow Festival. Click HERE to see more great products that go with this paper.

For the remainder of the card, I embossed the mitten image from the Make a Mitten stamp set.  The best part about this stamp set is you can use the Builder Punch-Mitten to punch out your mitten's.  NO CUTTING.  WHOA!  I used our Gumball Green Embossing Powder over the mitten to make it stand out just a wee bit more.  It's bright, isn't it? I also used our new 1/4" Sweater Trim to pin the mitten to after I wrapped it and tied in a bow.  LOVE this trim. 

As you can see there are lots of fun products used, but overall this card is simple to put together.  Below you will see  a complete list of supplies that I used.

Stamps: Make a Mitten (127943), Seasonal Sayings (128009)

Cardstock: Crumb Cake
