14 Days of Giveaways - Day 11 | Zsoka Marko December 11, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Hey there crafty friends,
Welcome to Day 11 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways!  Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
Today's FREE cut file is the Ugly Sweater Background.
I always love these Nordic type backgrounds so I was happy to work with this one! I modified the cut file a little because I wanted the pattern to be smaller. I shrunk it and then multiplied it. I cut this from white textured card stock, then backed it with a red patterned paper from the Crate Paper Falala collection.
It's become a tradition in my home to take these Rudolph photos every holiday season. These are from last year, I'm yet to take new ones! I just love them! Let's see how long the kiddo plays along :D.
Last year I made a layout with a big stag on it and I wanted to do something similar here. I found the Reindeer cut file in the shop and picked that one!
I blew this up and placed it slightly off to the left so I can put my long title at the bottom right. I wanted to kind of hang my photos on a clothesline between the antlers. For this I used some red  twine. I hung my photos on this with some teeny clothespins as well as some puffy stickers. 
I glued two wood veneer birds on the twine and tucked a few wood veneer presents behind the antler. I added 3 more wood pieces from Pinkfresh Studio in different spots on my page. 

For my journaling I used a die cut from the Pinkfresh Studio December Days collection and tucked it behind the cut file as well.
I mixed and matched my title, I used 3 different alpha thickers. The candy cane design ones were sort of lost in the background so I drew the outlines with a black pen.
Today's design, the Ugly Sweater Background, is yours for FREE today only! Just enter the code: UGLYFREE at checkout to get this design for free. This code is only valid until midnight CST on December 11, 2017. No purchase necessary.
Design will be available in the Just Nick store for purchase after the discount code expire.
That's it for today guys, I hope I could inspire you in any which way!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Till next time,
