Gift Card Mitten

From the Heart, i {heart} card sketches w/ a tWiSt #130 offered a sketch and an optional twist to turn it into a gift card. I chose to do both. I found a template, that I won't even link because I spent hours before I could get it to work, for the cardholder. I clear embossed the front using a Hero Arts snowflake stamp and went over it with Distress Ink followed by a baby wipe rub. Then, I edged the piece with a darker ink. I came up with a silly, but appropriate, sentiment all on my own to match this cute little mitten. I used R24, 35, 46, 59 and G02, 03, 05, 09 Copic markers. The mitten is popped up over the red banner. 
The back of the card was sprayed with B04 using a Copic airbrush. A couple of stamps and the twine and it's ready to be given!

    1. I had printed up several of From the Heart Stamps to work with, Kathy, and the mitten fit perfectly on this sized gift card. Funny way to decide which image to use LOL!
