Christmas Card Throwdown...October Theme

This theme is such fun!
Many will think of the crazy sweater parties that people have but I remember the beautiful Fishermen knit sweaters I used to wear at Christmas.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of light gold and glittery green card stocks.
Using another piece of white card stock I ran it through the Vagabond using Richard Gray “Lumberjack Days” embossing folder.
To finish I added a die cut sentiment from Tim Holtz “Christmas Ribbon” using the light gold card stock.

What sweater do you choose?
Join us for this fun challenge.


  1. Wonderful combination of colors and design! I love your card very much :-)
    Hugs, Majda

  2. Christmas for me means tee shirts and light clothing generally, as it is summer :) Love your card Arlene -that texture is beautiful, and the way you have mounted the embossed panel is stunning.
    Stay safe

  3. superbe motif Arlene, un pull aussi beau me fait

  4. I have embossing folder envy! As a knitter I love this pattern. Hubby is looking at ebay now! Wonderful card and very nostalgic, a lovely take on the theme.

  5. Arlene Rose: that embossing folder pattern is amazing! Thanks for using it for this new theme challenge for 52 CCT!!! Fabulous card and you've given it such an elegant mood with your choice of colors and that touch of green shine!
