Merry Christmas! Today is the day – the one that kids of all ages look forward to all year long. The man in red made his rounds last night, and I hope he left some goodies under your tree. I’ve saved a special card to share with you today. I like “ugly” Christmas sweaters – I think they’re a hoot and a half – and this card is covered in them. The Christmas Sweaters stamp set has six different sweaters, all of which I used on today’s card. It’s retiring and will only be available through January 2, 2018, or while supplies last. The You’ve Got Style stamp set provides the perfect sentiment inside the card. 


Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! You've Got Style Christmas Sweaters handmade Christmas card by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy Stampin' Up! You've Got Style Christmas Sweaters handmade Christmas card by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″

Stamped with the Christmas Sweaters stamp set:

  • the six sweaters in Basic Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS

Stamped with the You’ve Got Style stamp set:

  • sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the inside of the card base
  • NOTE: you may notice that I have an extra layer of Whisper White CS inside the card base. That’s because I made a mistake when I stamped the sentiment, so I stamped it again on a separate piece of Whisper White CS and glued it over the mistake.

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • the sweaters in Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, So Saffron, and Pacific Point.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • the six sweaters

Assembled the card:

  • sweaters adhered to the Whisper White CS layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
