DIY stitched greeting cards


Recently I stumbled across Stitching Cards, a site that sells downloadable e-patterns for embroidered greeting cards and bookmarks. Most patterns are a dollar or two, or you can raid the freebie section for some floral designs and an alphabet. I've seen 70s-style string art making a comeback on Pinterest— with these, you can try something similar on a small scale.


If you dig the idea of stitched cards but don't have the patience to do it yourself, check out Jeni Shirley's line of paper-and-thread creations. A source of inspiration!

The last time I visited my grandmother we looked through a box of her old keepsakes... in there was a collection of old cards that had been letters to HER mother, all with beautiful hand stitched details like this. It is the quality and love that goes into something that makes it a family heirloom! :)
