This week I made the Mitten Shaker card from The Cutting Cafe, and decided that it would be best mounted on a larger card because it didn't stand up alone, I am much happier with my efforts this week. I decorated the mitten border with snowflakes from Fun with Frosty the Snowman, and the background with Christmas Banners colored. I added micro beads and sequins once more.
This is an 8"x8" card, and I used Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye papers that were as close to the colour scheme as I could get them, with the grey provided by the dull silver card and stitching.
I got the machine out as you can see and stitched round all pieces, the mitten is in a pocket.
Christmas ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, and looks a bit crooked, I think the pocket must be a little crooked!
I added some snowy buttons and jingle bells, and the mitten cuff is flocked with Polar White Flower Soft.

Here is the mitten removed from the pocket ready to hang on the tree. I wanted the card to look nice still.
Here is the mitten hanging up by the ribbon, but not on my tree which isn't up yet.
