The card I have to share with you today was hand stitched, as I don't have a sewing machine. I've seen loads of stitched cards on the internet, which I think adds a really pretty finish to a card.
I used a paper piercer and the foam back of an old mouse mat to make the holes. This made it really easy. I then used a tapestry needle and three strands of embroidery thread to make the zig-zag stitch pattern.
In the next photo you can see the pierced holes, and a back stitch pattern I did on another card.
And this is the first of my cards for the car boot!
