A Knitter's Gift Cards

Here is a fun project I have been working on for a friend of mine who is an avid knitter. Mary is a kind soul - she is always knitting something for someone else. It seemed to me she could really use some gift cards to go with her lovely presents. I collected a few knitting related stamps, but the project really took off once I received the knitted background stamps in the Faux Fun stamp set by Waltzingmouse. On some of them (the white heart and the dark blue card) I embossed the knitted background and the texture made it look real! I also purchased (at an incredibly discounted price) a BigZ die of a small square envelope so I have made envelopes to match. (Click on any photos to enlarge.)
