Make a Mitten Christmas card with First Edition dsp

The days are getting colder - and wetter - here in the Pacific Northwest. There was all kinds of flooding, sink holes and fallen trees around the state last night. And there's more rain and wind today. It makes me want to grab a blanket and take a nap!
I put together this mitten card as a make and take for some demonstrator friends of mine. I CASE'd a card I saw on Pinterest by Lisa Arvidson. My card uses a Crumb Cake base, with layers of First Edition dsp and Basic Black card stock. The striped paper is from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp pack, with Tasteful Trim scallops stamped with a design from the Make a Mitten stamp set (in the Holiday Catalog). I used the Fancy Fan Folder to emboss the 2-1/2" Basic Black circle behind the punched mittens, which were inked with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake markers. Each mitten has a Basic Glimmer Brad (black) on it and they're attached together with white baker's twine. The knot is out of Cherry Cobbler seam binding.
I hope you're warm and dry! Today, I'm thankful for our home.

I never would have thought to use the First Edition DSP on a Christmas card but it totally looks awesome. Love how you did the mittens too. This is a great color scheme.
