Red Mitten Line

Inspired by another childhood favorite of mine - Too Many Mittens by Slobodkin. This book is out-of-print, but can be found from online resellers. A synopsis of the story can be found here in the customer reviews.
The card base is an A Muse French Roast notecard. Then I trimmed an A Muse Cabana blue dots notecard in half to only a card-front, then trimmed it's edges to look like trees and adhered it to the base. The line is hand drawn using an oval template as a guide.
Images, notecards, twinkle sticker by A Muse. Black ink, Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink, CM black journaling pen, Prismacolor marker, Art Glitter, Sakura Quickie Glue pen.

I'm loving all your sweet holiday cards lately! So fun!
My favs are the ones with the little train - oh, so cute!

Nice mittens, and a great book, I remember that one. I wonder if my mom still has it around? What a sweet card.
