Countdown to Confetti - Smitten Mittens


Today is the last day of Reverse Confetti's November release countdown*. One more stamp set to feature: Smitten Mittens. SO darling!





All of the new products will be available in the Reverse Confetti store
at midnight tonight.



I couldn't resist a monochromatic card featuring those gorgeous new shades of blue that Reverse Confetti is introducing this month! The mittens are stamped in Baby Blue, with some Navy shading around part of the perimeter. I added white felt bands for some cozy texture. 

The background was done with the Large Eyelet Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die. Love this one so, so much! I die-cut two of them, one from Baby Blue and the other from Navy, then trimmed down the Navy one slightly so that I could offset it slightly behind the Baby Blue one. I mounted everything onto a Mist card base for that third shade of blue.

The wavy strip behind the mittens is from the Greetings Frame Confetti Cuts die set. I backed the Navy one with one that I cut from one of the Warm Heart patterned papers.

Last, I accented with two sequin-topped Cloud White snowflakes die-cut with the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts dies from last month.
