Welcome to Creations by AR, Something Old...
I love taking an older template, and totally changing up the theme!
|Couldn't resist 'tilting' the large mitten just enough that the words 'Pudding in the Mix' were visible.|
For this project, the Winter Mittens Set is being used.
However, instead of a mitten, I've created an oven mitt, complete with a cake mix, frosting, and some cupcake liners. This will make a fun last-minute gift for someone special, don't you think?
|Here, I have enlarged and printed the mitten to be large enough to 'hide' the cake box.|
Using the Pillow Top Technique (found on Stamp TV), some ink, and a sponge dauber,
lines were sponged, in two directions, giving the cardstock a quilted, fabric look. In real life,
you just want to reach out and touch to be sure it's really paper!
|In this photo, you can see that the frosting container has been 'hidden' under pretty papers and trims, and the mitten template has been reduced, cut on the fold, and used to create a gift tag.|
You can find the Winter Mittens Set HERE. This set has three mitten templates: a mitten shaped Card, a mini Ornament, & a gift card Pouch. The card even comes with a cutout for framing a photo or sentiment!
Creations by AR's templates come in SVG, DXF, and PDF files.
As I have no cutting machine, my projects always use the PDF files and my trusty scissors!
Thanks for stopping by today,
On a personal note...
Dear daughter and her amazing hubby, and of course, our sweet grand-doggie boarded their plane for Germany late last night. We will miss them, but are so happy for the wonderful adventures that we know they will share over the next three years.
And...we applied today, for our passports!
Thanks to all of you for your thoughtful emails and cards, as we face this separation from them.
Melissa has previously lived out of country for a year, so we know we will get through this, but your kindness has been overwhelming. Thank you for being such great friends!!!
