Pink Mitten Victorian Christmas Card

Coffee of the Day - Highlander's Grog (butterscotch and caramel flavor)

Today begins a new challenge over at Aud Sentiments Challenges, with a fun 'Anything Goes' theme. Our sponsor is My Artistic Adventures, a lovely Etsy store of digital print outs with a vintage theme.

I chose to work with the Pink Victorian Mitten files for my cards. it doesn't show in the photo, but these are actually file folder cards.

I first applied the Crafter's Workshop mini harlequin stencil to the folders and used white craft ink. pink glimmer mist was sprayed over the top. various elements from the digital file were fussy cut and distress before adhering to the folders. platinum stickles decorate some of the edges while frosted snow stickles was used on her muff. small dots of stickles accent the holly berries. I used a clear spica glitter pen to add garland to the tree.

Madison crochet lace trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon accents the tops of each mitten, bows made of baby pink seam binding are tied across the bottom, and little snippets of moss gingham were stapled to the uppermost corners. pretty poinsettias are from Michael's and were painted a pale shade of pink to match.

I hope you will join our fun challenge! and thank you so much for stopping by. :)
