Ugly Sweater

I thought that i would sneak in one last Christmas card just under the wire before the big day! This is probably my favorite card I've made this season...mostly because ugly Christmas sweaters speak to me. I LOVE them!!! LOVE. They make me happy. I feel no shame, only unbridled joy and holiday spirit :) This card was so fun to 'ugly up'!!! Set my inner tacky decorator free....

I used a digital image from Saturated Canary, called (Ugly) Christmas Sweater. I coloured her with copics and added some spica glitter pens, loose fine glitter (to the tree) and sakura glaze pen. I wanted to get freaky with the stickles and add some tacky bling, but you have to be careful with the digi's because the printer ink will bleed....I have learned that the hard way!

Here is a closeup. I've added some MFT snowflake dies in silver CS and buttons tied with TCP's linen thread. The sentiment comes with the set and the paper bow underneath is also made with an MFT die. The silver tinsel ribbon is from SU and the red pleated mesh is from the Ribbon Carousel store. The little green jingle bell was a found item off my entrance way floor! I am assuming it fell off one of the boys' Christmas crafts from school! lol! Finders, keepers.

Here is the inside, using more snowflakes and my first ever attempt at Washi tape! Fun!!

Thanks for stopping by, and wishing you all the best this holiday season and always!
