Christmas Sweater Weather

Sunday, December 11, 2016

 It's most definitely sweater weather!  I think it's so funny that "ugly Christmas sweaters" are actually cool now!  If I had a Christmas sweater with a coffee cup on it, it would be anything but ugly...how could it be...I mean we're talkin' coffee here!!


My card started with Stampin Up's knit embossing folder for the background and - of course - the sweater die cut.  That die cut is from Simon Says Stamp, by the way.  The frame die is from My Favorite Things, cup from Verve Stamps and the sentiment is Paper Smooches.  How's that for an equal opportunity card? :)

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

  4. Oh this is not an ugly Christmas sweater in my book either! Your card is stunning and I adore the use of the embossing folder not only on the base later but also on the sweater, such dimension! Thank you for the inspiration
