You Make An Ugly Sweater Look Good
Today's card was created for the latest Fusion Card Challenge. I chose to stick to the sketch only on this one. I love the simplicity of it but chose to turn mine on its side for a landscape card. I started by layering some cherry cobber cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white card base and then cut a smaller panel of patterned paper from the American Crafts Wish List 6x6 paper pad down and adhered it directly onto the card. I stamped the sweater image from Simon Says Stamps Ugly Sweater stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then stamped the Christmas tree from the same stamp set onto the image and colored it in using my alcohol markers. I die cut a fun x-stitched edge circle using a Gina Marie Designs die and then adhered it directly onto the card. Using my mini-Misti I lined the sentiment up onto the card and stamped them right where I wanted them. I fussy cut the sweater image out and popped it up off of the focal panel using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I added some shimmer to the sentiment and a few select images by using my At You Spica clear shimmer pen and then added some Stickles to the ornaments and some of the elements on the sweater. I love this fun and whimsical card!
