Get out those mittens & hats . . .

 . . . well, NOT quite yet!  LOL!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Yes, it's still summertime here in the U.S.A. but you know
how quickly time goes by and it will be time for those mittens, hats
and scarves before you know it.  ALSO ... those holiday cards!

Today I have a fun card to share that was quick, easy and
perfect for holiday mass production.

The die I've used today is the Tutti Designs 'Santa in Mitten' TUTTI-134.

As you see, I created a PAIR of mittens for todays
card but you could certainly create with just one mitten and
it would be fabulous    Just like team mate Nancy shared HERE.

 SO MANY WAYS you can use this die cut!  Here's what I decided to do . . .

Yep, the old fashioned way ... just like back in grade school art class . . . trace & cut!  LOL!
I did the first one then thought why not flip it over
and make a mitten for the other hand!  

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all these fabulous dies.  They are a new company, only on their 2nd/3rd release and WOW are they fabulous!  If you haven't already made a purchase ... what are you waiting for???

Need inspiration?  The team has something new to share over on the Tutti Designs Blog EACH and EVERY DAY!  Pop on over and see for yourself ... what a talented group of designers!!

I'll be back again next Sunday with a new Tutti Designs project.
