Deck the Halls with ugly sweaters!

Hi everyone! Happy December 1st – can’t believe it’s here already! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #29 – December Anything Christmas Goes! I have a small collection of Vera and Mable stamps (with accompanying sentiments) from Great Impressions, and I decided on this fun Christmas sweater stamp for my card this month!


Aren’t these two of the cutest little old ladies you’ve ever seen?! I’m rapidly looking like the one on the right, lol! I stamped the image and sentiment on ivory cardstock, colored the image with Bic Mark-It markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, trimmed it and adhered it to a piece of foam for some dimension. The striped background paper is from one of my favorite Stampin’ Up DSP packs… seems like I reach for it a lot! ;)


I covered the inside of the card base with the same striped paper used on the front, and stamped a simple sentiment in black ink.


One more peek… I love how this turned out! Vera and Mable are awesome! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Hi Leslie! This is such a cute image and I hope that I can rock an ugly sweater as well as they do when I’m their age! I love that striped background paper that you used – it’s perfect! Take care and hope all is well in your world!

  2. I laughed out loud at your card, those ladies in their “lovely” sweaters, such fun. Another fabulous card outside and inside. Thank you so much for joining us in our challenge at QKR Stampede this week. Good Luck and looking forward to seeing you again in our next challenge.
