Beat the Blues

It's the beginning of a New Year 2016, and time to begin a new chapter in your book of life.  Mindy here, with a frosty look at one way to beat those wintertime blues, by keeping yourself cozy and warm.

My card for this week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such blog is my interpretation of our theme, Winter Blues.  One way to keep warm and cozy is to wear your gloves or mittens when your hands are cold.  I knew I wanted to feature my mittens, so I started by cutting my mittens die and adding background layers to feature them prominently. 

I used the following dies available in the Classy Cards 'n Such online store:
Stacked Mittens by Poppystamps
Fleur de Elegance by Spellbinders
Oval Regalia by Spellbinders

The background of my card base was embossed with the Juliet Damask embossing folder by Anna Griffin, before adhering the die cut backgrounds with 1/2" Scor-Tape and Joy! Foam Pads Large.  I colored and decorated the details of my mittens with a glitter gel pen, and tied a simple satin bow to match my colored layers.  The sentiment was stamped on a die from the Oval Regalia set with a stamp from the Just the Right Words by Becca Feeken stamp set from JustRite Clear Stamps.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and will consider entering our challenge with a card of your own. Hope to see you soon.
