Card for a Crocheting Friend



This cute skein of yarn is from the Stampin' Up! set called "Hand Knit." The sentiment is one I had custom made on Etsy.

I had fun with the different colors, but maybe would have moved a few of them around a little. Here are the colors I used:


I really find that the Memento Inks work a lot better when stamping fine images like this skein of yarn. However, to use the Stampin' Up! images I buy the re-inker and the mini uninked stamp pads. The small fabric pads don't get as gunky with the ink like the new larger Stampin' Up! ink pads can.

I really think my friend will love this card. I'd also like to try doing this with some neutral colors too, but not this time. I want to give her this gift tomorrow and it's already almost ten at night now. It seems like I always get these great ideas at Christmas with too little time to make all I want. I'll have to revisit this in January.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and have a blessed day!
