Two Warm Fuzzies Cards - Baby Yarn

Two cards with "Warm fuzzies to you." One is a simple collage landscape with horizontal strands of baby yarn (above), and the other is purple with a criss-cross pattern of yarn (below).

To see the yarn's original purpose, click here - baby booties. Though I've knitted a few pairs over the years, I have plenty of yarn leftover to use on cards.

For the first card, the yellow, pink, blue, green, and white yarn is adhered on the back with Scor Tape (and a vertical strip of 1/8" Scor Tape on the front center). The colored card stock is from Papertrey Ink - lemon tart, spring rain, aqua mist, and kraft. The sentiment is computer-printed in blue ink with "Lucida Handwriting" italic font. I used a sky blue Copic Multiliner to draw a blue frame on the base layer.

The second card has diagonal strands of the same yarn across the center of the card. The sentiment is computer-printed in purple ink on a 1-3/4" lavender circle with "Lucida Handwriting" font. To attach it to the card, I used 1/16" thick foam dots in the "corners" of the X of yarn. The colored card stock is Papertrey Ink plum pudding (purple) and lavender moon. The frame was drawn with purple Copic Multiliner with V04 Copic marker.
