Simon Says Stamp/Hero Arts Diecember – Christmas Sweater

Hello there!

Hero Arts has collaborated with Simon Says Stamp for Diecember and we’ve got a Christmas Sweater to share with you today.  

I cut the sweater using light pink cardstock.  The die cuts this detailed sweater with the Christmas tree in the center, but it doesn’t cut all the way through (the are sections towards the inner parts of the tree that make it all one piece), but I decided it cut it out so I can layer green paper underneath it.  Before doing that, I ink-blended the outer edges of the pink sweater with Crimson hybrid ink.  

To add additional color to the sweater, I cut strips of colored cardstock using yellow, red and green and adhered them to the back side of the sweater.  I added Pine hybrid ink to the green cardstock before adhering it to the sweater.  To give the tree some ornaments, I added droplets of Ruby Slippers Nuvo Glitter drops and Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops to the tree.  For the final touch, I added some Crystal Clear Lacquer to the dots on the sweater and over the entire tree.  

I added foam tape to the underside of the sweater and adhered it to a piece of Misty Rose Shimmer Cardstock from the Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit.  I decided then I wanted this card to be a square card, so I trimmed the shimmer paper to 4″ by 4″ to mat a 4.25″ by 4.25″ card base.  It’s a very soft pink and has a really beautiful shimmer to it and I’m sorry it doesn’t translate in the photograph! The last part of this card is the sentiment strip embossed using a stamp from the Stacking Snowflakes set.  

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your day is fabulous!

XOXO,
