52 Christmas Card Throwdown: Christmas Sweater

I got a new die set that screamed out to be a "Christmas sweater" for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge.  I love sweaters with classic nordic prints, but I am very much not a red/green person.  I know - that's almost blasphemy in the Christmas season.  I just prefer the softer, gentler side of the season including the colors. So my Christmas sweater card is pink!

These dies are actually separate borders. I used five of them in this card.  It's not my idea to use them that way - The Ton talked about it on their blog post introducing the dies. Also, the dies are the length of a slimline card so multiple uses.  The bold Merry Christmas is also from The Ton. I am a huge fan of unique fonts and styles so I adore this die!

Thank you to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for the inspiration!

  2. Your Christmas sweater is beautifully pretty - absolutely no need for red and green here! Your border dies work so well like this, but I'm sure they'll be equally useful used separately - I do love products with multiple uses! Thanks for playing along with the 52CCT this week.
