This is a card I made a month or two ago for good friends who have recently had their second child.
Her name is Emily and she is just as cute as her older sister Abi, which I hadn't thought possible!
I believe this is my first successful attempt to stitch card.
I first saw the effect a few years ago at a craft fair when I was less comfortable with a sewing machine, and loved it instantly.
As I have mentioned before, I don't like to buy lots of fancy card making materials, I like to be resourceful with what I already have.
The beautiful patterns on these little paper triangles were taken from a Laura Ashley catalogue (the rectangular images of fabric and wallpaper patterns). They were the perfect size for this project. The text is simply written on Microsoft Word, printed and cut out.
