Rockin' the Ugly Sweater

Happy Monday everyone.  I am so excited and honored to be one of the Guest Designers for Jaded Blossom this month.  Be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom blog daily as there is a different designer slated each day.
Today I would like to share with you a card and treat box that I made using the Bah Humbug stamp set.  If you haven’t gotten your hands on this set you are so missing out.  These hilarious sentiments offer such a world of opportunity for some fun Christmas crafting.  Combine them with one of my favorite Christmas characters - the Grinch - and the fun never ends.


 
To create my card I used one of the Grinch files that I found from Krafty Nook.  The background paper and the frame are both from a Grinch mat stack that I have in my stash.  The paper I used for my sweaters though is from the Jolly Holiday mat stack from Recollections.
 

 
To create the treat holder box I used the popcorn treat box as well as the Ugly Holiday Sweaters - both from SVG Cutting files.  I have a "twist" though.  I wanted to tie the treat box in with the sweater so instead of using the pieces in the file to decorate the sweater I chose to use the print 'n cut feature on my Cricut and used another Grinch file I had from Krafty Nook to decorate the sweater front.
Thanks for stopping by! 

I'm entering this project in to the following challenges:

Anything Goes - DL Art - Ends December 31st

Holiday Inspiration with Elf - Red Carpet Studios - Ends December 31st

Christmas Colors - Hiding in My Craft Room - Ends December 13th

Love this! I particularly love the treat basket! The sayings fit the grinch so well and I love the paper! I looked for Krafty Nook and it appears they are an "invitation only" blog and there is no info for a contact or to ask for an invite. Can you help me with that? I'd love to see what other files they have. Thank you :) Shanon - cimba33@aol.com
