Christmas Jumper Day


It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list. Your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!

Today's festivities are inspired by Christmas Jumper Day, which takes place on December 10th. The challenge runs from November 12th - November 22nd.

I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the celebration theme. When I looked at the festivity for this challenge, Hero Arts' Holiday Sweater die came to mind immediately. I die cut in it red, and added a green glitter tree and a gold star to adorn it. I mounted it on a white layer embossed with Stampin Up's Cable Knit EF. I mounted that on a base layer of Neenah Solar White 110# card stock. I added a few glittery snowflakes and a sentiment from Hero Arts taken from the movie Home Alone, which is a must see holiday tradition in my house. My boys and I watched it last night, and it seemed very fitting for this card.

I used jumper, red, green and glitter from the inspo list.
Stamps: Hero Arts Off-Beat Holiday Messages.
Dies: Hero Arts Christmas Sweater die set.
Paper: Neenah Solar White 80# & 110#, Memory Box Fairy Sugar Glitter Paper Pad, red, green & gold glitter paper scraps.
Accessories: Brutus Monroe Alabaster White embossing powder, .SU Cable Knit Embossing Folder.

Come play with us! Remember that your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!

Hi Stephanie, yes, we both seemed to highlight the festivity similarly. Your sentiment is a little more fun though!

Stephanie that bright red jumper with sparkly tree is so fabulous and looks great against the cable knot embossed background - so perfect for our challenge!
