This is a clean, layered card with a bold pop of red in the mittens. I'm submitting it to the current Merry Monday Challenge - MM#178 where the team want to see cards with red and gold - check! I die cut the gold marble banner and adhered it flat to the card. I stamped the mittens on scrap card and carefully cut them out, leaving a small border of white around each mitten. I finished the front by stamping some small gold mittens in the background. I added a touch of clear Wink of Stella to each glove - it really shimmers! On the inside I cut a mat layer of gold card and added a simple greeting to the white panel, along with some mittens! The card looks like it has some depth, but it is nice and flat, so easy to post!
You can really see the warm glow of the gold marble mirri card in the photo above! Sadly you can't see the shimmer on the tiny mittens. Do visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have made with this sketch.
I mentioned a DT call above - here's the information:
DESIGN TEAM CALL
We're looking for a few new members to join the team in 2016. We have a rota of challenges each month and they are:
- Week 1 - Sketch

If you wish to be considered you need to play along with THREE of the four challenges this month. Put the letters, DT, after your name on your entry submission. We will contact successful applicants during December and the new DT members will start with us in January 2016.
I've not been on the blog much this week - busy at home instead. I plan to be about a bit more next week, so do drop by. That's all for now - have a fun weekend and see you soon.
