Make it Monday #268

Can you imagine how happy my heart was when I received this week's Make it Monday edition?  OH happy, happy ... I get to make another two layered Mitten tag!

Papertrey, do you mind that I gave your darling Mitten a little hand-knit* look?  =]


I sure hope not!  because it really looks gorgeous, especially decorated with your Spruce & Sprigs and lovely button twine!

OH!  I nearly forgot to show the second layer!!!

The perfect sentiment, right?
 
My tag design uses a brad [we all have them buried deep somewhere!] to allow the recipient to swing the tag open ...
I even stamped 'hand-made just for you' on the back!
I'm in a Mitten State state of mind!
 
Thanks for the visit!
=]  Michele
 
*the texture comes from a Richard Garay embossing folder, from Hobby Lobby.

What a gorgeous embossing folder...I wish I had mittens like these!!! And what a sweet little card this is. And I wish HL was closer to me...maybe that's NOT a good thing!

A perfect embossing folder to use for the mitten! Your tag is beautiful, just enough decoration so it doesn't take away from the "knitted" look.

I'm smitten with your mittens, Michele :) Your embossing is so perfect, and I'll bet the folks over at PTI will say "Why didn't I think of that"! I love how you placed the Spruce and Sprigs, too...Really fabulous tag, my friend!

Quick question: Are you doing something special to get such a deep impression on your embossing folders?

I almost bought that die, Michele, then decided I'd rather just borrow yours sometime. ;) I do have the embossing folder though and it looks great in a mitten.
