Sweater Season

Sweater Season

Morning all!

Christmas may be over, but I find January to be the perfect time to pull out those recently purchased Christmas/winter supplies and get creative.

The other day I was making some cards using the little woolly hats in the Sweater Season die and stamp sets from Concord & 9th and in typical fashion hadn't got round to clearing everything away from my craft desk.

Well, with the now seasonally cold weather having finally arrived and my cosy fair isle jumper on, I thought it would be a good idea to harness the wintry vibes and make another card with these supplies while they were on my desk - this time focusing on the sweater dies in the set.

I started out by impressing some stitched circles into an A2 panel of white cardstock to frame the sweaters and help me create a random layout for positioning them.

If you don't have any dies in your stash that will do this, you can simply cut white circles with a stitched edge or create apertures in your card background.

I then used the following shades of Concord & 9th cardstock to cut all the sweater elements:

  • Sweet Pea

  • Carnation

  • Poppy

  • Sunflower

  • Aqua Sky

  • Oceanside

  • Blueberry

  • White

I decorated some of the sentiments with the coordinating stamps to add stitched details and patterns.

Once my sweaters were all done, I glued them down in the circles and trimmed around the panel.

I grabbed the Warm Wishes sentiment from the stamp set, and stamped it on grey cardstock and fussy cut it out.

Once all the elements were assembled on the card, I added some gems for a touch of frosty sparkle.

And there we have it, another card added to the 2024 Christmas card collection.

Let's see how well I do at making at least one Christmas card per week this year! Feel free to play along and keep me company, as I am pretty sure it is going to be heavy going come July!

Until next time, happy crafting!
