Stitched cards is one of my favourite cross stitch items. It is pretty quick to do. I still remember my 1st stitched card, it was a not-so-nice card actually. Anyway, I'm glad that the recipient likes it.Since then my passion for stitched cards becomes stronger, I stitched more and more cards.
I made my own rectangle/square apertures card blanks. Luckily, now I can ask Nik to make the round/oval apertures for me. She loves card-making and has made many beautiful handmade cards as well as card-making tools ~ rubberstamping, tea bag folding, cross stitched etc etc etc. Anyway, I only make stitched cards since my great passion is needlework.Moreover, I need to buy those tools if I wanted to venture into card-making which I am not very keen to do.
Sue Cook is my favourite designer for stitched cards. She has a lots lovely designs and I am looking forward purchasing her book in near future. At the moment, I KIV my stitched cards project coz I need to finish the XS Bellpull Exchange which is now is 85% complete and Fickle Minded Round Robin (FM RR) to finish before our birthdays in June (three of us are sharing a birthday month *wink*)
Oh... I really missed stitching cards! : )
