Stitched Cards

I was lucky enough to be given some beautiful cards last week, which I studied and studied until I worked out how to make them. These ones are made by me - I think I've finally cracked the code (after a few misfires) and now can sew these flames or leaves all by myself. I'll try to post a tutorial is anyone's interested (let me know), but they're a low-tech and very easy craft project.

I'm not sure about the use of two colours here, but I'll keep experimenting...


  1. I like the depth the 2 colours give.

    Are these called 'envelope shapes' or something along those lines? I have a recollection saying so from way back, and I hope it's correct as it would be a nice link to their current stationary role!

  2. I'm not sure what they're called, but thanks for the proper name! Istill like to think of them as 'flames', but that's just me :)

  3. I LOVE THIS! I'd love to see a how to!

  4. Thanks Abbey! I'll get onto it and post it up soon. xx
