Yep, another challenge!

It’s been a crazy week for me.  Crazy days at work because as a hairstylist right before a holiday is crazy busy.   And, my little dog Shelby ate a chocolate desert that my daughter made for me and I left it apparently where he could get to it.  So, I spent 5 hours at the Vet Emergency Hosp.

However, because Freshly Made Sketches gave us a pretty easy challenge I was able to make a card.  Here’s the sketch:Freshly Made sketches FMS214

Here’s my entry2015-11-26 23.57.58

So here’s how I made it.  The base card is 5×7″.  The red layer is a 4.75×6.75″.  The white embossed layer is 4.5×6.5″.  The sweater is a Silhouette digital file.  I then created the sentiment on my computer and freehand cut it into a banner shape and another red banner shape to attach underneath.  I then added red jewels.  And, that was it!  This would make a great sketch to use for making a batch of humorous Christmas cards.  Especially if you used a purchased die cut at a craft store and even purchased banners.  You could create a batch of cards in no time at all.

I have been crafting with paper for several yrs. now. I am a single mother of four grown children (2 boys, 2 girls) and a grandmother of 6 (5 girls and 1 boy). I still work as a hairdresser part time at a beautiful retirement community in San Ramon, CA My passions are: gardening, sewing and crafting with paper while watching my favorite TV shows. I have an amazing dog named Shelby who I just can't imagine life without. I hope, with this blog, that I will inspire, teach, prevent costly mistakes in your journey and well, just have a lot of fun creating.

  1. Great card. Is that sweater really ugly?; if so, I’ll have to throw mine (that looks just like it) out. LOL. Believe me, I have them much uglier than that! Love how you gave all the directions…even a beginner card-maker would feel comfortable trying this…simple but FABULOUS!


  2. Glad you got a little break from the holiday craziness. This is such a fun card…wonderful sweater! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!
