For today’s project I stamped one of the sweaters from the Christmas Sweater stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I carefully coloured alternate stripes of the sweater using the brush end of the Berry Burst Marker. After a bit of trial and error I found it best to brush the colour on in one direction rather than going backwards and forwards, you get a less streaky finish.

The image was then die cut using the Big Shot and the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes framelit dies. I added the stitched circle using Tombow Liquid Adhesive to a large scallop circle which was die cut from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using the Layering Circle framelit dies.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5⅞” by 3⅝” and wrapped a length of ½” Finely Woven Berry Burst Ribbon about a third of the way down the panel, adhering it to the back with sellotape and added the circle topper piece over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment was then stamped below the sweater using Lemon Lime Twist ink. The whole panel was then added to a Thick Whisper White card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
