For this card, I have used one of the Funky Fossil Designs October new release clear stamp sets called "Sew Lovely" on a "Knitted Background Stencil".

I started by blending "Cracked Pistachio" Distress Oxide on white cardstock.

I then used the "Knitted Background Stencil" with "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Inks and a blending tool to create the grey knit stitch pattern over the green background.  I then die cut this into a circle with a stitched edge detail to the die cut.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Sew Happy For You" sentiment, which is part of the "Sew Lovely" clear stamp set.

On a plain piece of white card, I used a blender and "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide and adhered the die cut circle over it.  

On each corner of the "Weathered Wood" square, I stamped the "kisses/cross-stitch detail" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist".

I used a blender and "Cracked Pistachio" Distress Oxide Inks on a plain piece of square card and glued the grey square on top.

I then moved on to the main feature of the circle, by stamping the sewing machine (part of the "Sew Lovely" stamp set) over the knit stitch background, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I then stamped the same image on to plain white card and fussy cut the sewing machine out and adhered over the original stamped image.  Finally, I coloured the foliage with a Sakura Jelly Roll Pen.
