I made my own multi-coloured ink pad for these cards by folding a baby wipe in four and covering it in drops of ink from my re-inkers, but once I'd done that these cards were very quick: a couple of swipes on the homemade pad with the wheel, stamp and cut out the mittens, add the sentiment and assemble!
The mittens on this design were stamped in Always Artichoke on Certainly Celery card stock. I cut mine out with paper snips - it's quite quick - but, if you hate fussy cutting, there is a punch which cuts out the right-hand mitten and you can always stamp onto the punched shape to get the left-hand one.
The second design is perfect for a November birthday and suitable for a male too! I sponged over the background on this one...
... and topped it with mittens stamped in the homemade pad, cut out and sponged for a bit of definition.
The sentiments on both cards are from Curly Cute - which I think is quite oddly named. I can see the curliness but what's cute about it?! But then again, I'm sure people say that about me...
