Simon Says Stamp’s Ugly Sweater set is so fun and has so many possibilities — though, I think any creation made with it wouldn’t be ugly at all!!
I used three different patterned papers for the sweaters and coordinating papers for the trim — all were stamped, cut out, and glued.
Behind the three sweaters I used Concord and 9th’s Tree Ring Background stamp and a strip of flowered paper. I stamped the sentiment on acetate and then layered these on a gray card. The tree ring was coloured with gelatos.
Each sweater was embellished with a different item — a wooden bird coloured yellow with alcohol ink markers, a pear sticker attached with foam tape and highlighted with liquid pearls, and a wooden tree coloured and also highlighted with liquid pearls. The flowered and striped sweaters were attached directly to the card and the “pear sweater” was attached with foam tape. A few silver sequins were attached to the card.
The piece of tree ring that was cut away for the placement on the front was attached to the back of the card.
