Woolen Wishes

 
 
 
A fun card to share with you today.  I'm entering it into the Pinspired Challenge, as well as the Moxie Fab World window challenge and Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge....I love it when it all works out that way!

When I started out, I was just going to make a card for the Pinspired Challenge.  Here's the challenge photo: 



As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed to pull out my Becky Oehlers' Warm Woolen Mittens stamp set.  I had the idea to use the mittens to create a heart, but when I was putting it together, the lightbulb came on and I thought, "Why don't I cut a little window and put the heart on the inside of the card?"  This might be the smallest window ever on a window card!



The little mitten strings are hand drawn, and I popped the mitten wrists up with foam tape.  I had a heck of a time photographing the card....I eventually just used washi tape to tape it shut so I could get the photo with the heart showing through. 

This what the inside looks like.



And that's all there is to it.  Hope your day is off to a great start!

  11. How wonderfully wintery! It really looks like your mittens are cut from wool or felt, and like the cuff is knit. And I love all the white space.
