Deck the Halls with Christmas Sweaters

I received some new SU! goodies today and had to play with them!

It seems that to be a member of our staff at school.... Christmas sweaters are a must so I had to have the Christmas Sweaters stamp set as I will use it to create cards for a couple of my friends on staff.  I paired it with the Be Merry paper collection... because, well... green, red and white to me, make the perfect Christmas sweater ;)


For some interest on the white paper, I embossed it with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder (the Cable Knit one would have worked here as well - and guess what... on SALE now!).  There is just something about woodgrain.  The I also got the Scallop Tag Topper and had to use it as well.  Fun! Now to make it like a real Christmas sweater, I added a pom pom and chunky glitter to the hat.

Looks great, Laurel! How fun that you and your friends wear Christmas sweaters. I would so do that, too, if I could. Your card looks fabulous! Lots of color and patterns and they all play so well together. You are the queen of getting that to happen. :)

The Christmas sweaters are certainly unique. I love how you paper pieced the Santa and then added some extra white fluffy sparkle to his hat. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week and sharing this lovely Christmas card!

Cute Christmas sweater card, Laurel! When I saw the SU sweater stamp set, I couldn't imagine how I would use it... but your card is PERFECT for it! Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! -Donna
