Christmas Sweater

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, the UK, and Australia, and Veterans Day in the USA.  Thank you to all those who have served and those who are serving to keep us free!!


No, I'm not showing you any weird Christmas sweater!!  Just a quick post of a Christmas card that should have happened last night.   On Monday, I got MME's Christmas Sweater 6x6 pad and love it!!!
When I saw this week's sketch at Merry Monday (#40), I really liked it and thought I would use it this week to make several similar cards.  I have been making cards all along the year but most of them are not going to mail well and this sketch would look great with "flat" cards.  I only got one done! :/  Better than none, but I'll keep it and make more as I really like it!

I used MME Sweater Weather DP.  Love this 6x6 pad!!  I embossed the panels.  If you look close, some are "backwards" since it is 2 sided and I kept changing my mind on which side to use!  Maybe I'll use the other combos in others. Faded jeans distress ink on the edges and image, stamp from Michaels $1 bin, and Iridescent embossing powder.  You can see a bit of the shimmer on the stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Such a pretty card! Great patterns in that paper stack. I always have trouble making "flat" cards - I have a tough time just leaving them alone and it makes them really expensive to mail. I love the layout you used and will have to keep this in mind!
