Embossed Mittens for Jingle Belles Challenge

I'm going to make this a short post. I haven't been feeling well and wanted to post this card before heading off to get some rest. This card was inspired by the current "Mission EMBOSS-ible"challenge at Jingle Belles. Who can resist a challenge to emboss? Unfortunately, I have many ideas rolling around in my head, including some with heat embossing, but I just don't have the energy to create. Instead, I hand cut a pair of mittens, dry embossed them and layered them on an embossed background. I used the plaid background because it reminds me of flannel clothing and warmth. Thanks for the inspiration Steph C @ One Crafty Chica!


  1. The embossing really makes those mittens look warm & cozy ... so very glad you joined our Mission EMBOSSible at Jingle Belles.
