Simply Soft Sweater

When I saw Janis's gorgeous card over at PDE, I just had to buy this Ugly Sweater cut file from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons (via the Silhouette store).


I used sticky embossing powder to cover the sweater with green flocking (note to self: buy more green flocking!) and decorated it with fabric stickers from American Crafts. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink on watercolor paper and folded it to make a tag. The papers are from my stash, and I added a stitched border with a dark gold gel pen. Think I'll make a bunch of these!

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad I inspired you. Aren't these Ugly Sweaters fun? Your flocking and stitched image are amazing. And that folded watercolor paper really does look like a tag. Great job!
