Although I have a number of stamp sets from the Holiday catalogue, I am often drawn to make a card with the Wrapped in Warmth stamp set featured on pages 12-13.
And to coordinate with this set, I purchased the fabulous new Cable Knit Embossing Folder, the Warmth & Cheer 6x6 paper stack, and the Kraft Rope Trim.
The greetings conjure up memories of my childhood in Montreal - frosty, snowy, icy, chilly - always having to dress warmly. Both my mom and nanny were fabulous knitters and every winter my siblings and I would get a new sweater (because of course, we'd outgrown the one from the previous year).
Here are some of the cards I have made:
I also made a couple of boxes:
|Made with Baker's Box thinklits, item #138279|
|Made with Gift Box Punch Board, item #135863|
This week I happened upon a video by Tami White in which she shows how to make a cable knit sweater card. I just had to make one and here it is:
If you'd like to make one, I'm including two resources for you.
