When it is cold what is nicer than a nice warm sweater! I have been posting a lot of different sweaters I have created using Joset Designs Winter Sweater die set, but this one was especially fun.
In my stash (for years) I had a spool of red trim and did not know what to do with it. When I was thinking of ways to create fun sweaters, this trim came to mind and it was actually pretty easy to use to create this sweater. The Winter Sweater was die cut with a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive on white card stock. The Adhesive covering was cut with scissors up along the sleeve line, so I would working with just the body of the sweater to begin with. There is a string along the top edge of this trim that I layered going across the body of the sweater. When you use the Clear Double Sided Adhesive, it makes it easy to attach. Each row was trimmed just as wide as the body of the sweater. Once the body was filled in with the trim, the covering over the Adhesive was pulled off the arms and trim added the same way. The cuffs were die cut using white card stock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive, and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter added. The cuffs were added after the red trim was all attached. You can trim the length of some of the red trim, when needed to stay within the die cut. Three small white pom poms were added down the front.
Three of Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words die sets were used for the sentiment; Warm Thoughts, Calligraphic Elements 2 and Cozy. They were die cut using Gold Shimmer Sheetz.
The Els van de Burgt Studio new Holiday Garlands 2 die set was used to die cut the border along the bottom of the card.
How many ways can you think of to decorate this cute Winter Sweater die cut?
