Entering a card today for the Muse: ChristmasVisions #114 Am regretful about not joining much, as I do love seeing the cards and inspiration. When I saw the "free for all" challenge, I decided to post a card made a while back but not blogged about. Have only finished a few Christmas cards.
I've put the Merry Christmas greeting inside since I could not figure out where to put a sentiment on the front.
This card was made with many snippets so I am also entering it into the Pixie's Crafty Workshop Playground Challenge # 340.
The snippets are the white cardstock for the sweater itself, including all the separate ribbing pieces at the cuffs, collar and hem. The silver snowflakes and the sentiment are snippets of paper too. It just occurred to me that I that I could add a red circle into the center of the snowflake on the sweater to match the greeting. Done; looks better, in real life.
Here are the details. The background is from Michael's Recollections Paper in a nice gray stripe. The sweater is by Elizabeth Craft Designs, a die called Winter Sweater. The snowflake is from there too. I've looked everywhere and cannot find the embossing folder that I used for texture. Senior moment(s) and a messy desk! Sigh. The silver and red shiny cardstock is from Stampin' Up! To adhere the small pieces as well as the greeting, I used Stick It. A wonderful invention! The sentiment dies are from a NBUS set also from Elizabeth Crafts called Words 5-Winter Wishes. Got it on a recent sale. I am really pleased with this card. Think I'll send it to a friend in a warm place. Teehee
