Hi there! Martha Lucia here with you.
Today I’m sharing my version of Ugly Sweater Shaped Card that I made using a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe and Rinea Foiled Papers.

To create this card, I used the Ugly Sweater cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.  I love to work with these files because you can personalize and they came in many formats. But let me share the entire process with you:

  1. Import the SVG files into the Design Space of Cricut. Shaped Card by Martha Lucia
  2. Select the files that you want to use and resize them according to the instructions. Shaped Card by Martha Lucia
  3. Select the files that you want to cut. The ugly sweater shaped card has the card base and four different designs to be used as top layers.
  4. Place the paper over the cutting mat. I used card stock for the card base and Blush/Blush Starstruck Rinea Foiled Paper. IMPORTANT: To cut Rinea Foiled Paper on your electronic cutting machine, set your material as Vellum.
  5. After cutting the pieces that I wanted to use to make my card, I decided to create more texture over the top layer. With a Spellbinders die cut I cut the center of the ugly sweater and pasted behind a piece of Fuschia/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper.
  6. I passed the entire top layer piece with an embossing folder through the big shot without including the special details of my design.
  7. Paste the decorated top layer directly over the card base and paste the details of the design with double-sided foam tape.
  8. To finalize the card, I added a top layer using Turquoise/Gold Rinea Foiled Paper over the center design and a tiny flower on top cut with a punch.
