It was my dear friend, Caz, birthday in April. Caz is one of the most talented people I know. She can perfect many different crafts and it just leaves me in awe of her talent!
When it came to creating Caz' birthday card I decided to try my hand at something new. In fact, it is something I did as a small child but have not attempted for years. And I really surprised myself at how much I remembered.
So, here is my card....
I started off my stencilling clear texture paste through a stencil. I left this to dry overnight.
I die cut 2 labels in co-ordinating colours.
The focal point of the card saw me knitting with cocktail sticks! I thought this would be quite easy but cocktail sticks are so small and fragile it was harder that I thought! I even added a bead to the end of each stick to finish the 'needles' off. The yarn that I used was craft twine and I curled the remainder into a ball.
The knitting was then glued to the card.
I finished with a couple of greetings which were stamped and die-cut.
I actually enjoyed creating this card (don't tell anyone). The knitting was quite exciting.... though it's not making me run out and start to knit a jumper for every member of my family just yet! LOL!
Thanks for looking.....
