Winter Warmies FCCB #42

Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

It's Monday so that means it's time for another Fantabulous Crciut "Challenge Me Monday!" Todays challenge is "Winter Warmies." Create something using things you would wear to keep you warm in the winter. For this challenge I created a shaped card.
Here is what I used to make this card:
Cricut Cartridges ~ Everyday Paper Dolls, Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More
Gypsy ~ the mittens from this cartridge come in pairs so the first thing I did was "hide" one of the mittens. Once that was done I copied the mitten I wanted to use and flipped it and welded the 2 together. I also cut 2 more mittens, one in white and one in blue. I glued the blue one on top of my welded base so that it would hide the fold. I then cut the bottom off the white mitten to create a white cuff.
Cardstock ~ from my stash
Cuttlebug ~ Houndstooth embossing folder
White Fun Flock ~  I used this on the whilte cuff
Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch
Martha Stewart Gem
Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
Sentiment ~ Computer generated

Head on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to check out what the rest of the Fantabulous designers have created. I invite each one of you to participate in the challenge. Who knows! You could be the winner of the great prize this week!

Happy Crafting!
