Hello again everyone! Looks like I've been making this knitted quilling heart card again this month. In fact I made quite a few of them for some old friends on their birthday and some extra for stock. I really enjoyed making this design because I get to play with vortex coils again and of course not forgetting the knitting!! Obsessed with knitting nowadays haha!
The reason why I'm blogging about this one is because, I've made some changes to the design especially the colours of the knitted quilling heart and also the pop up hearts. I decided to make it look more bright and cheerful to match the colours of the pop up hearts.
The knitted heart now has flourescent pink and red Lily yarn combined together. The previous one has soft pink and red Lily yarn.

When I first started learning how to do French knitting last month, I always had a thought at the back of my mind about how to use it as part of the decoration on my handmade cards. If I could combine it with quilling that would be even better. So the thought never left my mind. I knew I had to combine them somehow, one day. 
So I did some research on what people would use the French Knitting (i-cords) for. I was really surprised at the things that people can make with it. However I didn't find any examples of the i-cords used for cards, but I did find that there are people who made hearts, ribbons, stars and many other shapes with it. So, it's all up to your imagination to design whatever you fancy and make it your own.
This month I have a birthday card to make for a dear friend of mine and she's really crazy about hearts!! She loves hearts so much I tell ya! Haha! So I thought the ideas I had for this birthday card couldn't have come at the right time for her. …
