MDS Monday #40 It's ugly sweater time!!!

* this is my second MDS Post today.. please scroll down for more Projects*

Well it's another week and yet another Monday... Today is Veterans day so I want to say Thank You to all those Veterans out there Past & Present and to their families serving with them. It's not an easy job but it's a very important one.

This week at MDS Monday Heidi is our hostess and she's created a great Card Sketch. And she added in an extra challenge... are you up for it? She'd like us to print out a portion of our MDS project and make it a Hybrid card. 

I found this cute downloads called Spunky Sweather  it's perfect if you have a White Elephant or Ugly Sweater party each year... Here's my creation card creation in MDS.

For Heidi's extra part of the challenge.. I printed out 2 of the cards I created and trimmed them up. (I'm not going to lie, I'm not a fan of printing my MDS stuff off at home. It never lines up right and the colors are always off.) This is a challenge I'm still figuring out.. Print at home. 

I trimmed the white panel and I added it to a Black Card base and then I fussy cut the other sweater out and adhered it with dimensionals. 

I felt it needed a little extra pop.. So I added a little bit of shimmer to each of the lights on the sweater.. It's hard to see in the picture.. If you click and make it larger you can see it a little better. 

Head over to the MDS Monday Blog and check out what the other Design Team members created and we hope you will play along with us.. The challenge is open until Nov 22nd @ 11:55pm EST. 


  1. ROFL, what a fun idea for a card. I saw an ugly Christmas sweater for dogs but my husband won't let me get it for our dog LOL. He's nicer than I am, I suppose!

  2. Ok wow - this is hilarious! I love the printed out card... looks great with the sweater popped up. I want to come to your party ;)

  3. I love this Holly! I bought those sweaters on MDS, I think they are great :) I'll have to message you about printing!

  4. This is great, Holly. And my family is going to have a White Elephant gift exchange this year on Christmas. lol

  5. Eeewww, the ugly sweater! It looks so fabulous as a hybrid!
