Deck the Halls with Ugly Sweaters!

Hi everybody! Well, we're a week into December and Christmas will be upon us before we know it. I'm happy to report that I'm once again guest designing for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my cards was featured there a few weeks ago, so here I am! I'm happy to share my inspiration project for Challenge #80 - Christmas. You know how I love my fancy folds so I created a 3-tier pull-out card. This was my second project using my new Scan N Cut. OMG, I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I had with this!

Vera and Mabel are my two favorite old ladies who could be me and my BFF. And they are rockin' their ugly sweaters this Christmas season, lol! And how 'bout that plaid Christmas paper?! LOVE it!

Here's the second tier pulled out...

And finally, the third tier...

Isn't this awesome?! I'm totally head over heels with this fold - so much fun and so versatile. Could be used for any occasion!

I'd love to enter this fun Christmas card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin'' Up! Kraft and Basic Black 12x12 cardstock, Stampin' Up! Warmth and Cheer DSP
  • Stamps: Great Impressions 'Holiday Vera and Mabel' and 'Ugly Sweaters!' rubber stamps, Stampin' Up! 'And Many More' stamp set

  • Accessories: White Crystal Drops, green ribbon scrap, Studios Blackbird green twine, KaiserCraft green flat-back pearls

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found just a little inspiration to play in our Christmas challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
Scrappy hugs,

This is really cute. I love attending ugly sweater parties. However, I saw a church friend the other night at the grocery store and asked if she'd just come from one. Oh my, I sure was embarrassed to learn that "no, she just likes her old Christmas sweater". I learned my lesson about asking!!! Thanks so much for stopping by to share it with us. It's always so nice to have you join us.
Blessings to you,
