Fair Isle Ornament


If you've been following my blog a while, you may know that I'm a knitter who is obsessed with fair isle.   (These are my nephews and niece putting my FI knits to good use.)   There are so many ways to play with it, even in my cards now.  Squee!

Really simple one-layer card here.  Of note, I stamped the bottom half of Stampendous Winter Birds for the evergreen bough and added Wink of Stella to the snow for some sparkle.
I can't leave out my cute kitty when I'm showcasing cute kiddies, now can I?  I've chosen a pic from when we first got him at about 6 months old.  If only he were wearing fair isle too.  LOL.


The Details:  Impression Obsession Vintage Ornaments stamps, Stampendous Winter Birds stamp, Recollections white 110 lb cardstock, Versamark, Ranger gold embossing powder, Delicata Golden Glitz, Memento Ladybug, Distress Peeled Paint, Wink of Stella

Updated:  better pic of card

  1. Love your Fair Isle ornament and the fab tree branch it is hanging from. Can't beat a bit of twinkle on a Christmas card either.
    Must admit that my only foray into FI ended when I ran out of some Phildar wool and the shop I bought it from closed down. I found it recently in a blanket chest!
    Thanks for joining in at Fantasy Stampers this time and hope to see you back soon. :)
