CLEVELAND, Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Christmas sweater has become a well-known symbol of the holiday season—just think of all the "themed" parties with these sweaters on full display! For those who love to show off their holiday cheer, the Christmas sweater really is the life of the party! This year, American Greetings Corporation is honoring the Christmas sweater tradition by introducing Sparkle Knits™, a new line of holiday cards adorned in decorated sweaters that feature songs and lights.
Nothing says, "I love Christmas," like festive music, twinkling lights, and a good old fashioned holiday sweater. Well, nothing but a card collection that combines all three! Introducing Sparkle Knits, an innovative new take on Christmas cards featuring warm, light-hearted copy and mini-fleece sweaters decorated with layers of ornamental accents. With just a tug on the hanger, a favorite Christmas song plays and the sweaters light up and twinkle in harmony with the music.
