4 Crafty Chicks - Die Cuts

Hello, my crafty blog friends!  Today I'm sharing a project I created for a Guest Design spot I'm participating in for the month of October with the challenge blog 4 Crafty Chicks.  I will be sharing four projects in total starting with this post for their new Die-Cut Challenge #319 which starts today, and carrying on each Thursday throughout the month with a new theme for each week's challenge.  I hope that you will all stop by to play along with them.
I created this sweet little Christmas mitten using FIVE (5) different die-cuts.  Now please realize that you don't have to use five different die-cuts in order to play along.  You need to use only one die cut for this week's challenge.  I simply chose to use several die-cuts on my project to help get you all motivated to pull out your dies and play along.  Almost all the dies I used on this project are from Papertrey Ink.  The mitten itself is a die-cut from their Shake-Up Series called Mitten Die, the holly leaves are a die from their Holly Jolly Die Set, and finally, the star borders I added are the Open Stars and Closed Stars from their Super Star Borders Die Set.  Finally, the scalloped border die I used at the top is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps and is the smaller of the two borders in their Scalloped Borders Set.

The rest of the Design Team Members have also created some fabulous samples to inspire and motivate you.  I hope you'll put out your die-cuts and stop by the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog to check out all the fun, and of course to play along in their challenge.  Who knows.....YOU could be their next lucky winner.

Happy crafting!
