Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #22 - Shaped Cards!

It's time for a new Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!   This month it's all about Shaped Cards!  Create any card with a shape other than a Rectangle or Square!  Here's what I have for you today:

You may remember my recent post using the Ugly Sweater cutting file from The Cutting Cafe!  I had cut a couple extra cards at that time and decided to use the file for something other than Christmas sweaters.  And I had these Janes Doodles images all colored up to use during the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop and ran out of time (thanks job!) so I decided Fall Sweaters would be awesome!

I chose a brown argyle from the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky Fall paper pack.  I had my card bases cut already so I cut two of the sweater layers .. one from the print and one from brown cardstock.  (And of course this guys got some pumpkin spice coffee!  Are you new here??)

After they were all cut out, I layered on my pieces and swapped the cuffs, neck and waste bands out for a little contrast.  I used the Taylored Expressions Cable Knit embossing folder to emboss the plain cardstock for some sweater texture.  Love that folder!!  I've used it so much during the chilly season.  Then I chose the images and sentiments I would use from the Hello Fall Sentiment Set, Nuts About You, and Pumpkin Spice sets that I had previously colored, cut them out and layered them onto my sweaters.

Aren't those cutie pie squirrels so cuuute!?!  Speaking of pie... I've still got lots more images from these sets so you may be seeing some more!

That's it for me today!  Be sure you head on over to Donna's and Susan's places to see what they've created for you today and then head on over to Three Amigos to play along!  We can't wait to see what you create!
