Mitten Shaped Card w/ Rem Santa Sleigh Tag & Daisy the Elf

Click here for Guest Design DLART Vintage Bottle Brush Be Merry Card.
Using the Mitten die for first time that I bought at Simon Says Stamp 50% off dies to make a shaped card. Used thread to sew the side of the Mitten together. 

Used a Cricut cartridge which I had bought from a friend when I had my former Cricut but on Cricut Explore Air you can only link cartridges and not insert to use and only cartridges not linked on a different Cricut can be linked but with Cricut subscription I have access to the cartridge amongst many others that I do not own so if you are considering whether to buy a Cricut Explore Air I would recommend the subscription. 

Made a removable Tag with a Santa Sleigh & Reindeer scene on it. Cut the Tag multiple times to paper piece the scene.

Daisy the Elf found my mittens that she likes.

  1. That is very unique Mitten creation - I need to get my Cricut hooked up and use it - I have so many cartridges - you have inspired me to get busy with that Melissa - Merry CHRISTmas and Happy 2016 Year!

  5. This mitten is so pretty with the polka dotted paper. Such a wonderful shaped card. I love the tag that goes with it. Nice job, Melissa!

  6. I love your new mitten die! What a cute shaped card/tag combo! Daisy sure does like your mittens! I think she may need a smaller size to fit her little elf hands!

  7. Great mitten die - and a fun shape for a card. I think those mittens are a bit too big for Daisy - she'd probably fit inside them!
