A Fusion "Sparkly Christmas" Mitten - Edited

You might imagine how excited I was to receive [not one but] three deliveries over the weekend!! Yay!  More mittens!!
 
The fabulous Fusion inspiration for Sparkly Christmas:



So I've put together a little something that reminds me of my childhood mittens... you know the kind that cannot be lost because one is attached to the other?  This will be Tom's Christmas card... we're attached, too...like this:

 
But it isn't complete without the other mitten whose little string was popped through a small little hole in the card fold then mounted on the interior with an appropriate inside sentiment:
 
MFT Mittens decorated with Hero Arts white e.p. and glittered up with Stickles.
The embossing folder is a Sizzix for BasicGrey - it was a duo of folders with a bonus Snowman die.  It has sadly been retired, but I found it on ebay for a few of my friends - gosh I do love shopping with no spending!! =]
 
(Edited to include information about the embossing folder for a few inquiring minds =)

Lovely winter cards - especially love the first one and have to ask who makes the embossing folder you used and where the "you" die came from :)

This is so pretty and such a clever design! Love the fun mittens and your embossed snowflake background (is it MFT? Or another company?)

:-) What an awesome card! I love that the mittens are attached through the card! I've never thought of using mittens on a card, but your mitten cards are showing me what I've been missing, lol!
