Mom’s Sweater Birthday Card

I made this card — and the video — for my mother’s birthday in May.  I was able to give her the card, but sadly, she passed away 6 weeks later.  I never got around to posting the video, and for a while I thought I wouldn’t.  When I think back on how much mom liked the card, I decided I would post it after all.

Many of the products I used are now  retired (they retired at the end of the 2019/2020 catalog, just after I made the video), but you can certainly use other DSP, ink and card stock.

Be sure to click on the video below for step by step directions.

The sweater is made from a piece of  DSP from the Dressed to Impress collection.

The neck was made from a scrap piece of Petal Pink.   The scalloped trim around the neck of the sweater was cut from the Layering Circles Die Set.  The bow is a piece of Lovey Lipstick ribbon.

The strip of “fabric” down the center of the sweater is Lovely Lipstick card stock cut in a thin strip.  The buttons were made using pearls.

I chose not to put a pocket on the sweater, but instead adorned it with the Happy  Birthday sentiment.  It was die cut using the Layering Circles die set.

The inside sentiment was stamped using Lovely Lipstick ink.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this project.

Happy Stampin’!
