Merry Sweater Weather

I couldn't wait to make another card using this cute Silhouette cut file from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons! This time, I decorated the sweater with tiny buttons.


The sweater is cut from a pre-glittered Core'Dinations cardstock, and the cuffs are heat-embossed with the same WOW! embossing powder that I used for the sentiment on the gold paper. I heat-embossed white buttons in glitter green & gold and attached them to the sweater with Glossy Accents. I then hand-stitched the jingle bell on top and the buttons with red thread. The felt poinsettia & leaves are from my stash, and I attached them with a jingle bell brad.
