Verve Release ~ Winter Mittens ~ Day 1

Woo-Hoo!! Verve is having another release this week!! And you'll love what Julee has for you too!! Today, I'm peeking the sweet little mittens from the set Winter Mittens. This set has 6 charming images: 3 beautifully fonted sentiments, mittens, a darling little button and cute little heart. This set, along with one of each of the other sets being peeked today, will be given to one random commenter also. Just make sure you leave your comments before 7:00 pm Eastern time Friday evening. The winners will be announced at the release party that night. So, be sure to check out what each of the divas has to share with you today. I'll have the links at the end of this post. Now, for my card.


I stamped the mittens onto some Velveteen paper, cut them out and added some glitter. They're framed with the Beaded Spellbinders Circles. I colored the button with Copics and added some Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel. The swirls and snowflakes are stickers, and the border was made with an EK Success Punch.

I also added some Viva Decor Opaque White Gloss Gel to the Beaded frame. I wanted the look of sparkly snowballs, so they're each covered with Cool Highlight Crystal Glitter Ritz Transparent Micro Fine Glitter too. (man that's a mouthful....lol) Here's a close~up of one of the snowballs.

That's it for today's card. Thanks so much for stopping by. Now,be sure to check out what the other Divas have to show ya.
