CASology 75 - Knit


This week's CASology Cue Card is Knit!


What a perfect cue card for this time of year (at least here in Toronto where it's been very, very cold this past week!).

I used a knitted scarf from Papertrey, an alphabet from MFT and a little 'wishes' from Clearly Besotted. I love to mix up my stamps to create something that the makers of the stamps never envisioned. The scarf was intended for a snowman and my original thought was to make a snowman card. Then I thought that maybe the scarf could keep something else warm. Like the word 'warm'. Once I got the letters out, I immediately saw where the scarf would look best and stamped the scarf  in Poppy Parade and then masked it before stamping the letters in Soft Suede. The similarity of the Clearly Besotted 'wishes' font made it the obvious choice to finish off the card.

Now it's your turn! But before you go, check out what all the other DT members came up with for your inspiration!
