White on White: Warm Winter Wishes

A white on white Christmas that's a challenge! It's the current "optional" challenge at Christmas Card Challenge. I began by dry embossing several pair of white mittens. I fussy cut around them and layered one on top of the other using dimensional adhesive in the very center and double sided adhesive around the edges. Next I added a bit of polyfil to represent the white fur. It gave the mittens additional dimension and a warm "fuzzy" look. Over the embossed heart in the center of each mitten, I used Diamond Glaze.  I wanted the hearts to pop to add focal interest.  Then I embossed a white piece of cardstock (I thought that chevron pattern looked a lot like a knitted texture), ran it through the die cut machine and created a frame. I added white embroidery thread to each mitten and along the left edge then used dimensional adhesive to adhere the frame to the cardbase. I made several attempts to include the sentiment on the front of the card. No matter what I came up with, it looked out of place and distracting, so I  end up printing "Warm Winter Wishes" inside.

Since the theme at The Corrosive Challenge is "I've Been Framed", I'll link up with that challenge as well.
