Ugly Christmas Sweater


The current challenge at ScrapbookerPhd is to created a shaped or folded card.
I have had this paper in my stash for a couple of years and it has always reminded me of a Christmas sweater.  I used Cricut Craft room to create the card.  I found a shirt in the Everday Paper Doll cartridge and then stretched and welded two together to created the card.
I had fun adding lots of embellishments to make it look "tacky"  The star is a charm and I stitched it to the card so that it won't fall off.  I found a pom pom the perfect size to give Rudolph his red nose and the ribbon is from the dollar spot at Michaels.  I purposely left the ends frayed to give it that well worn look.

Here's the inside:

This card is for a certain someone we constantly tease about wearing ugly sweaters.  However, I think it would also make a great invitation for an Ugly Sweater Party.  I have already received an inviation to attend one Ugly Sweater party this year.

Card Details:
Card shape: Created in Cricut Craft Room
Christmas Tree: Magnolia Doo Hickey die
Reindeer: Cottage Cutz Die
Inside Sentiment: Computer generated by me

Entered in the following challenges:
