Embroidered Greeting Card

When it comes time to send a greeting card, I hate buying plain drugstore cards. They're the same every year! I was absolutely thrilled when I found Sublime Stitching Stitchable Stationery in my local craft store.

I whipped this little baby up and sent it to a friend:


Jenny Hart's designs are lovely. All you do is poke holes in the card with a needle, then embroider using backstitches.

I love the blue floss and the way the stitches look on the card. I also have fun running my fingers over the stitches. Ya can't get that at Walgreen's!

The inside of the card looks a little scary after you finish embroidering...

so I glued a cardstock onto the back to cover up the craziness!

If you're looking for a more personal card to send, you should get some of these. They'd also be super easy to DIY with some cardstock, embroidery floss, and a needle.
