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! ;)
