Mit­tens

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Knowhow Technique -

1 Mix ½ tbsp of white and a lit­tle dark green acrylic paint into the gloss medium to make a pale green paste. Spread out on the gel plate. Add lines of white and red. Draw a nar­row tool al­ter­na­tively up and down to cre­ate a feather ef­fect. Print pa­per as be­fore.

2 Use the re­main­ing paste and smooth out. Add dark green and white in lines. Draw the nar­row tool down through the paint re­peat­ing all the way across, to cre­ate the loop ef­fect. Print the pa­per as be­fore and leave to dry.

3 Cut out right and left mit­ten shapes. Cut out cuffs from the green pa­per and add to the mit­tens. At­tach to the 130mm square base as shown.

4 Stamp a sen­ti­ment in dark green and em­boss with clear pow­der. Stamp red snowflakes over the card, add dots of gold. Stitch lines of metal­lic thread from the top of the card to each mit­ten cuff and back again, as shown. Trim ends neatly, to fin­ish.
