How on earth are we in November already........ Every year I promise myself that I'll be more organised and have all my cards ready, written and postage stamps stuck on, and guess what........nope. Thank goodness for the Mittens Box Die, it's allowed me to batch make a pile of Christmas cards in no time at all. The steel rule die allows multiple layers of paper/lightweight card to be cut at once with no phaffing! Perfect for getting me back on track with my mission!
I used a pack of pre-made 6"x6" white card blancs from my stash, and the leftovers from an old Dovecraft paper pad. The striped base layer is 5 1/2" square, the next layer is 4 1/2" sqare and the hearts and zig zigs are the reverse of the blue paper. I prepped everything ready, and sat and glued everything together whilst watching tv. Simple. I finished off by adding a little doodling around the edges and created a bow for the hearts to hang from. I think the sentiment is from an older Anna Griffin kit it lives solo, so I'm not entirely sure.
And a happy little accident, I made a bookmark :) The paper was folded in half and tucked inside of the cutting line on one side of the die. The top of the mitten is glued to create the "L" shape needed to fit the corner of the page. How simple is that, but what a cute inexpensive gift to pop in your card.
