Have you ever heard of an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party? They are becoming more and more popular. Connor and I were invited to our first one a few years ago. We had a great time. We just received an invitation to go to one this year ( I can't believe the Christmas madness is already starting!).
Some people buy ugly sweaters at Goodwill or other second-hand stores. You can also make your own. We just received an invitation to go to one this year ( I can't believe it!). Below are some pictures from a past party. Our outfits were ugly, but our friends take the cake! How embarrassing, they showed up to the party wearing the same sweater! Connor and I are going to have to work a little harder this year if we are going to keep up with them.
I love that stamps are keeping up with Popular Culture. They released this stamp set to help us celebrate Ugly Sweater Christmas Season!
It was harder than I thought to make her sweater Ugly. I still wanted to incorporate red and green, but needed something that clashes with those colors. The color combo I settled on is one that I use to create "gold". I just added more Y26 than I normally would. Play with it until you find something that works for you.
Red: R14, R24, R29, R39
Green: G20, G21, G24, G28
Yellow: Y00, Y17, Y26--Yuck!!
Black: N9, N7, N5,
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Purple: BV04, BV02, BV00, BV000
Shadows: N3, N1, 0
I used an exact-knife to cut a little slit by her arm. You can slip the sentiment in this slot. I love the look of it. I can't wait to try this technique on a few other cards!
Oh, I love the ugly sweater girl!ReplyDelete
