My Ugly Christmas Sweater

Hi everyone! Can you believe it’s May 1st already?! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog. I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #22 – May Anything Christmas Goes! I created an absolutely adorable Christmas card using the Melonheadz Ugly Christmas Sweater digital pack. I’ve had this image in my arsenal of digital images forever (yes, many years) and decided it was time to use it!


I used the poem as my background, with a blue/red/green color combo on her ugly sweater and detail down the left side. Her sweater boasts Clear Star Gelly Roll pen sparkle and big ole’ red gemstones, lol! She is thick (three layers thick) and so stinkin’ cute!


I embellished the inside panel with leftover black cardstock, keeping it fairly simple. I cut the inside sentiment with a stitched circle die, and added some color and Clear Star Gelly Roll pen sparkle.


Here’s another look… super happy with how this turned out! So glad I decided to peruse my digi files for something ‘new’ to use that I’ve had for a long time!


Oh, and one more look – I told you she was thick, lol! I printed her three times and layered them all on top of one another for some awesome dimension and texture!
