[Video]Artiste Mitten Christmas Cricut Card

Today's card uses the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge and the Cuttlebug to create a "knitted" mitten look.

Check out the sizing of the mittens from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge below:
Using the Cuttlebug Fabric Swatches set (click HERE to see more about this set), I was able to create a "knitted" look to the mittens. Take a closer look below:
I used the cut below from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge and the Holiday Tags stamp set to make the sentiment.

  3. Really nice card and the embossing is such a special touch. Yes my tree is up. I put it up over the weekend and love how it gets me in the mood. I have a cat under the tree now and know exactly what happens with costs around. But we do love having them around!

  11. Like the mittens; especially the embossing for the knit look. My tree is up. Hubby had put up our tree and then Sun morn we went to Michaels and bought a new 7 1/2 ft pre-lit Conway tree that can have the lights clear, multi or alternate. We have it alternate. Our former tree which we are donating is a 7 1/2 ft pre-lit clear light tree. I like the multi-color and choice to have it alternate from clear to multi-light.

  32. No, our tree isn't up yet, but we're going to get our tree on Monday. Yes, we do a live tree. How clever embossing the mittens.

  33. Love your knitted mittens! Soooooo cute! Have the smaller kitchen tree up with gingerbread ornaments, but the big tree is up, waiting for decorations.

  34. the mittens do look like knitting and that folder really did a good job. This is an adorable card and I love the way you added those extra colors and glitter paper to break up the long space your put your little mittens on. It helped to balance out the composition and add depth and texture to the card base. It also helped to support the paper holding the little mittens. I kept your eye moving and broke up the long shape and added an opportunity for adding more colors and contrast. Very clever of you. I have to remember that so I can use it too LOL

  35. Love the mittens. Nice! Roylene
