Cable Knit Sweater Card

Hello, hello.  Once again I'm going to showcase the Cable Knit embossing folder.

If you go to Pinterest, you will find all kinds of cards using this embossing folder and they are making them into "Ugly Sweater" cards!!  I'm going to be offering a local class to people and let them design their own ugly sweater cards, sounds like a lot of fun!!  Heck, a whole class on making sweaters would be great, think guy cards too.

Now the vision I had for this card was different, but I think I saved it so that I can mail it off to someone.  Kind of reminds me of a "Grandma Sweater" too.

I used once again the Pink Flamingo card stock for this card.  I did use half of a retired Paper Doily but the new ones will look great too!  I also used some of my bigger retired pearls for the buttons.  I did mount the card front onto some Blushing Bride card stock to make it look like flesh.

Next time I would make the Cable Knit the same size as the card base, but for my first try, it's not too bad!

Don't forget that selected Designer Series Paper is now buy three and get one free until October 31, 2016!

Hope to see you again soon, and thank you for coming by!  Mary
