Free Cutting File - Mittens

I remember when I was little, my grandma used to make me those knitted mittens on a string, the string went up one arm, across my back and down my other arm with a mitten on each end, so I would never lose them.  They worked!  Those mittens were the inspiration for the Mittens cutting file and the little card I made using the file.

First the card. I used some bulk white and blue cardstock to make the card. The background is embossed using a ProvoCraft swirly embossing folder (love my Texture Boutique!). The mittens were cut out of white card stock, then stamped and embossed with a snowflake stamp by Inkadinkadoo. Then I used Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink to color the mittens, and the embossed snowflakes resisted the ink. The cuffs were colored the same way, then covered with white flock. A little bit of embroidery floss provided the string, and the warm fuzzies sentiment finished it off.


And here's the cutting file for you. Just click on the preview image to download the files. As always, MTC, SVG and now PDF files are included in the free download. Enjoy! {{link has expired}}
