"Crazy Christmas Sweater" Inspired...



Have you been to a Crazy Christmas Sweater party? Do you own one?  You know, with a zillion colors and patterns? :) Well, that's what I was thinking of when I made this card with Fabulous Holiday Fillers!  I don't care for the half circle as a border as much as I like the belly band "scallops" (watch this video), but I am all about trying to create some new looks, as you know.  ;) I have to say, I do really like the little rows of Christmas trees and hearts, that part is my favorite!  The trees and hearts are both stamped off in between to create the lighter shades. I was playing with the washi again, too.  This is a single layer card. 

Inks: GKD Red Hot, Christmas Pine, Fresh Asparagus ink pads
GKD Pure Luxury Base Weight White cardstock

My Christmas card is stash is growing!

I remember when sweaters like this were all the rage around holiday time. I love how you recreated that look on the card and how festive it is too!

Looks much better on a card than a sweater. I love this look. I am really loving the belly band scallop look. These sets have so many possibilities.

OMGosh, how cute!!!
I love that whole "ugly sweater" thing going on, and this card certainly is a nod to that!
Well done!
Too stinkin' cute!!!!

Wait, I need to qualify that statement.
The "ugly sweater" thing is pretty much a colorful sweater that we problably wouldn't chose for ourselves, but some loved one chose it, so we wear it proudly!
Not that your card is ugly, okay?
Teehee, I thought oops, that sounded wrong, somehow. LOL
