Knitters' Birthday Cards

For these cards I knit the little jumpers and glued beads onto cocktail sticks to make the knitting needles.

This one was made for Lee-Anne's sketch challenge at Trimcraft last week. I used purple pearlescent card, and the backing paper is from Funky Hand's Paper Blossom download. I cut the felt flowers on my cuttlebug and added buttons to the centre. The wool along the bottom is some fancy yarn from my stash.

The backing paper for this one is from Funky Hand's Now That's Funky CD, and the green pearl paper I embossed on my cuttlebug. The Happy Birthday is from a packet of confetti from Sainsbury's.

For the next two cards I again used backing paper from the Now That's Funky CD, and cuttlebug felt flowers. I inked the edges of the round pieces of backing paper and embossed the ones behind the jumpers.
