Warm Wishes !

Thursday, 19 December 2013

Hello friends,
 A quick post here to share a card I made inspired by the ongoing challenge at Casology # 75- Knit, and here's my take on it:





The ladies of my house are brilliant at knitting but unfortunately, I am not :P. So didn't show actual knitting in my card. lol 
For making it, I hand drew the basket on another piece of cardstock, coloured it using distress inks and fussy cut it. The little yarn balls are made by cutting out little circles from a sturdy card stock and wrapping it with the yarn to make it look like a yarn ball. I didn't have coloured yarn with me, so I coloured them using memento and distress inks. Have used toothpicks for knitting needles. Finally, before sticking them on the card base, inked the base area with memento dandelion to add a litle 'warmth' to the detail. The sentiment is hand written. 

P.S.-Sorry for the bad picture quality,  sadly my home is devoid of proper sunlight during winters.

Also linking it to keep it simple-warm
365 cards-recycled( I have recycled the yarn and the toothpicks)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments. :)
