Tonight the design team is using Winter Mittens (by Nina Brackett) and A Year of Borders (by Melanie Muenchinger).
Here is the project I designed with Winter Mittens: I stamped the mittens on ivory cardstock and then cut them with the coordinating Spellbinders Nested Mittens die (which will also be available on Thursday night at Gina K Designs). I cut another mitten from the cardstock to create the back of the mitten so I could insert the stick into it. I used a tin I found at Target for the base and added the sentiment right to it. I thought this would be a cute presentation for a Starbucks gift card or even some candy. (You can poke the lollipop sticks into the Styrofoam base.)
Next, I used A Year of Borders to create a holiday card that is easy to mass produce and mail:I embossed the poinsettias on green cardstock ( All Spruced Up )and then matted it on white before adhering it to the card base. I rounded the corners, added some raffia and rhinestones and done.
