I attempted to make an ugly sweater Christmas card. But I don't think I succeeded!
I have challenged my club gals to create an ugly sweater card for a contest I'm holding. The person who gets the most votes gets a $25 gift certificate from me. We vote at my December Club events. I'll be sure to share them with you too.
It's a little too 'pretty' don't you think? I shouldn't have started with that pretty Designer Paper! It's the This Christmas Specialty paper in the main catalog.
The card is 4 1/4" X 11" and I die-cut the neckline in both layers with an Oval framelit. The designer paper is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" with a 1 1/4" slit down the middle to form the collar. I added very thin strips of Red Glimmer paper on the edges.
I did add lots of bling. A pearl necklace and colored rhinestones - done with my Red Blendabilities marker. (Yes I still have them, hoping we get more someday....!)
I punched a Red Glimmer bow and die-cut a 'merry' greeting too. The cute bell fringe is done by threading our red jingle bells on Baker's twine. I added a dot of multipurpose adhesive under each bell to get them to stay in place. They do still jingle though!
