Knitting on Repeat with Gemma

Today I have a card to share using this month’s theme of ‘Repeat Patterns’. I’m using the WOW Simply Sew stamp set, teaming it with WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set to create my repeat pattern background.

I began by cutting a piece of blue cardstock to slightly smaller than my A2 notecard base.

Using a stamp positioner, I repeatedly stamped one of the larger images from the WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set over the background, using WOW clear embossing ink, then heat embossing with WOW Metalline Blue embossing powder. This opaque powder shows up beautifully on dark cardstock.

Once I’d embossed the whole panel, I used the Lawn Fawn Just Double Stitching rectangle die set to add some more detail to the panel. I then adhered it to my white card base.

Next, I die cut two tags using the Hello Bluebird Stitched Tag Builder die set. I embossed a sentiment from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set using the same Metalline Blue embossing powder. I used some silver coloured thread to tie the tags together, then adhered them on my card.

I stamped and copic coloured the ball of wool and knitting needles from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set. I cut them out and adhered them to my card with foam tape to finish. I love this monochromatic card, perfect for someone who loves to knit.

Have a lovely day,

  1. I love this knitting themed card Gemma, and the background repeat pattern goes beautifully with the sentiment tags and the wool and needles. x
