Day 11! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple; sharing makes past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! Today I thought I would share some cards involving other crafts, so here are some knitting and sewing cards!
Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards; using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)
The April A-Z Challenge
What is it all about? Basically posting every day throughout April, except Sundays. Following the alphabet, whether keeping to a theme or otherwise. It’s a great challenge, and one of my favourite parts is meeting other bloggers!

An A-Z of Handmade Cards
This year for MY April A-Z Challenge; I have chosen a running theme of handmade cards. Although I make cards for every occasion, it is rare these days, for me to actually share them! So throughout April I will be sharing cards I have made, to both share, and perhaps inspire others to give card making a try! I will endeavour to use a variety of creative methods, covering many every-day events.
Knitting and Sewing Cards
Being a crafter, means I also have crafter friends! So it’s sometimes fun to create a card using a special creative theme that is particular to them.
Using other handcrafted pieces on cards is a fun and creative way to embelish. Whether you make the additions yourself, or buy them from a craft shop. It’s no secret I love to cross-stitch cards, but a fun card for a cross-stitcher could be a well placed mini-kit in place of an image, for them to do later!
Of course sometimes it is simply the theme of a craft that is appropriate. Whether your friend is an artist or a crafter, it can be fun trying to create something personal to them. If crafting is not especially your thing, you can even find printed cards that reflect different crafts!
If you like any of the cards seen in the challenge, I may well have some or be able to recreate them. Drop me a message or email me! (Socials below, and email can be found in the contact tab).
