Hello crafty friends! I am so excited to be featuring Day 11 of the 12 Days of Stitchmas boxed set I am sure you have seen so much amazing inspiration from Days 1 through 10 already!
Day 11 is an adorable sweater die that I know you are going to love creating with. I had a ball making several different versions of the sweater and even added a few dies to my projects from earlier days of Stitchmas.
Watch video below or on our Youtube channel:
My first project started out with a fun embossed card front – this Puff Dotty folder is one of my all-time favorites. I think it fits the vibe of the holiday sweater perfectly!
I die cut one sweater from Peridot cardstock, then leveled up by making my own striped cardstock to really customize my second sweater. And, after adding a layer of pink floss, I also came back and added another layer of stitching with the gold Diamant thread. It’s the first time I have ever tried this technique and I love how it turned out!
For another card, I followed the same theme by making a striped sweater, but this time I added it to a shaped card base which I created using the Notched Corner Frames die set. This is such a versatile set and with ten sizes of frames nested in one set, it’s also a great value! Adding the super sweet Comfort & Joy Sentiments glimmer set on this card really finished it off nicely.
There are SO many different sweaters you can create with the Day 11 stitch die, I could not resist one more card!
Once again, I created two sweaters to layer up on my card front (which I covered with a patterned paper from the Make It Merry Paper Pad. Then, it was time to go crazy with elements for the front of the sweater! I used small dies from the Christmas Wonder die set, but you could choose any die from your collection. Use your imagination, I know you will have so much fun!
Thanks for taking a peek at my Day 11 Stitchmas projects! Be sure to check out all twelve of the videos created with this set. I am always amazed at the creativity of my fellow designers!
