Crushed Curry Christmas Sweater Swap Card

Hello there,
Today I have a card, well 8 actually, that I made for swapping when I went to team training in Yorkshire a few weeks ago :-) As you *may* have noticed this Christmas Sweater set is a firm favourite of mine, so obviously I wanted to use it for my swaps and this is what I came up with...
 I started by stamping the jumper in memento ink onto shimmer card and colouring using an aqua painter and my Crushed Curry ink pad.
I then added this lovely DSP (from the Christmas Around The World pack) to a layer of white card (the same size 10.3cm x 14.5cm) to give it extra stability and so I could pop up the larger layer.
I then die cut the stitched circle, leaving it large enough to fit the jumper on, before running a grey marker around all the edges (of both the paper layers and the jumpers too) to make them pop before adding the circle flat to the thick white card base.
TIP: To position the circle correctly - Lay the whole paper layer on the card front, remove the circle, add glue and adhere flat before removing the large layer to add the sentiment.
Then I stapled the ribbon to the larger paper layer, topping with a sentiment (from the same set) before adhering it to the base with foam tape. Add the sweater to the circle using dimensionals to finish...
 Then repeat 8 times! Lol, I probably should have made something with less steps but I was happy with the end result and the swap ladies seemed to like them so that's all that matters, right?
Right, That's all for today, I'll be back tomorrow to start a Three day mini series showcasing the Wishes All Aglow stamp set. I do hope you can join me here?!
