Baby, It's Cold Outside

Hello friends! Welcome to this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. My darling Design Team sister Emily selected this week's challenge theme.  As it is growing colder in many areas of the country (and not so much in other areas), Emily asked us to create projects that feature winter apparel, mittens, hats, scarves, and jackets.  I chose to create a 3-D mitten ornament for our Christmas tree (which is going up this week).

I designed the mitten in Cricut's Design Space software.  I used six cartridges and several cardstock scraps from my Christmas paper stash.  The basic mitten shape was cut using Holiday Cakes (remember those Cricut Cake cartridges?  I still use many of the cuts).  The rosette was created using Ribbons and Rosettes.  The lace at the edge of the cuff was cut using Edge to Edge 2, and the little scalloped lace borders was cut with Create Cards.  The cut circle tag (I love the edge cuts on this tag) was cut using New Arrival.  Finally, I used shapes from Basic Shapes to assist with welding and slicing. I finished my mitten ornament with machine stitched edges, craft pearls, and a Merry Christmas stamp.

I hope that you have been by the Bitten By the Bug blog and viewed the fun and fabulous winter warmth crafted by the Design Team.  We would love it if you found some time this week to join our weekly challenge.   

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope that you take a moment and read the blog post below about the Cyber Monday sale at Close To My Heart.
