Winter Sweater Gift Card

Saturday is the last day to order the February Card Kit of the Month…CLICK HERE for details! 

Although I am LONGING for Spring to arrive, it is very much winter today.  A little snow overnight and temps have dropped back into the 20s.  Brrrr…..  So…how about a winter sweater to keep you warm?

A friend of mine brought a gift certificate to the fall stamping retreat I attend.  It caught my eye, and I set out to figure out how I could reproduce it with Stampin’ Up! products.  A couple hours later and I had a template!

I started with the red pattern paper from Ski Slope (now retired) and cut out the basic shape of the sweater, adding 1/2 inch for Sticky Strip to hold it closed.  Then added the sleeves, layered on Whisper White for definition, the white stripe along the center, Button Bouquet designer buttons for the front.  I used my Scallop Edge punch to make the small black ric rac for the bottom, sleeves and along the collar.

The collar pulls up and out to hold a gift card.  For this, I used Riding Hood Red cardstock for a little more weight.  I used the slit punch on each side to place the slits to hold the gift card in place.

Wouldn’t this be FUN to receive? 

Today I need to work on some magazine calls.  I finished one last night and it is SO cute…wish I could show you!  Hopefully, the magazine will pick it up and I can tell you about it!

Have a great day!

I was there while this was incubating! It is so adorable and you were so clever figuring out how to replicate the elements from the original card with SU! products.
