Ugly Sweaters?

Hi Everyone, my work today is entitled Ugly Sweaters, but, not by me but Deedee at Deedee's Digis. She is sponsoring the Challenge at "Sparkles Christmas Challenge" which is "Use mostly green and must be a Christmas card"

So my choice to make a card was from the Ugly Sweaters kit, I decided to colour the sweaters from the "Outline" images in the kit. The trouble was I couldn't make up my mind which image to use or even the design of the cards, mojo overdrive???? so decided to do 3. I think you could say they are different, from the size of the digis to the design, just goes to show how versatile digi's are. I used all the sentiments in the kit too. I also decided to add a "knit" effect too in PS.


















first card used Tattered Lace embossing border folder, image is fussy cut and laid on top of embossed layer.
second card used Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder, image 3D layered with green ribbon and paper cut and matched to background colour, background DP Shabby Princess
third card used Crafts-Too Christmas trees embossing folder with centre cut out, images 3D layered and added confetti.
I used a knit background from Elines Babies at Cuddly Buddly, I altered it to black and white and then used it as an overlay in PS to make the knitted effect.

  5. FABulous! I love the knit sweater effect. I read you directions but still trying to figure out how you did it. I'm not very good in PS and I really need to spend more time in it. Super job and 3 less cards to do for Christmas.

  6. Delightful! Saw this earlier today at DeeDee's blog, but didn't have time to comment then. I LOVE what you've done with this design. And the embossing behind the sweaters makes me think "knit pattern". Right along with your PS effects. You've certainly aced this one & amazing work in PS. Great Job! TFS & Hugs
