Mitten Christmas Card


Hi
I was visiting a few blogs and Juliets blog http://ballpointbliss.blogspot.com/ gave me an idea. I had just seen mittens on Lynn Pratts blog http://stampndesign.blogspot.com/ and thought it would be such a snap to do a card like that. Well it was in a pdf and I figured I could just trace it into SCAL and away we go. Not so. There were too many nodes to cut smoothly. It took forever and it was cutting in dashes not one long smooth cut. Finally it got done. So of course it had to have bling. The poinsettia is an svg cut from Birds Cards http://www.birdscards.com/. The snowflake is one I have had in the computer for awhile. Sorry that was before I kept track of whose work it was. If you recognize it please let me know and I will give you credit. A little dollar store felt and there it was. Also a little glitzy silver paper behind the snow flake for added interest.
Have a Blessed day.

I don't think I understood half of what you said. . .LOL nodes? SCAL? Whatever all that means, it turned out really cute. Best, Curt
