Turquoise Mittens

   For this card I was asked to use the colors: red, white, and turquoise. My decision to use the mittens from Gina K’s Christmas Wishes is only based on the fact that this was the only stamp left in the set that I hadn’t yet used.

     I inked the front of an A2 turquoise card base with Pacific Point ink. Attached a strip of red card stock. The snowflake rectangle is from the Winter Cheer Stamp TV kit. To make the red frame, I used Spellbinders Lazy circles and die cut the center with Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. I stamped the white circle using the stamp away technique and Tempting Turquoise ink. The mittens are stamped with Pacific Point. I embellished the snowflakes with Gold Gelly Roll and Elizabeth Craft turquoise glitter stickers. The gold twine is also Gina k. The metal mittens . . . I think I got from Tuesday Morning. I separate the packaging from embellishments like these as soon as I get them home and store them in divided fishing tackle boxes. I rarely remember the brands or where I get them.
