3 Handmade Stitched Greeting Cards.

I had started with a whole different idea for this post and I even got half way through it, but I changed my mind. I just got the biggest urge to sew on paper, something I really love to do!

What happened was that I was looking through one of my craft drawers and doing a bit of organizing when I came across these gorgeous vintage-y chipboard die cuts. Aren’t they so pretty?

I instantly thought they would look lovely on a greeting card.  And since they had a sewing theme, well I just had to stitch some up!

I kept it really simple by adding just a few extra details like a little bit of twine, a piece of vintage lace and some simple machine stitching.

Have you tried sewing on paper or chipboard before? It’s so fun! Paper is easy. Chipboard is just a bit more challenging. The trick to make it easier is to just take it slow. Oh and don’t worry about it looking perfect.

  1. All three are gorgeous so it’s hard to choose my favorite. But I love the stitching around the floral. I haven’t seen it down that way before and I really like the look. Excellent blog post!

  2. All three are great, but I especially love the stitching around the floral. I really need to get my sewing machine repaired so I can have fun like this!

  3. It’s so hard to pick between the floral card (I’m in the year of all about growth) and the mannequin (cause I’m studying fashion styling) haha, but honestly the floral card is just so stunning, it was the first thing that instantly captivated me!

    I love how you always come up with such amazing ways to decorate your cards! I definitely need to try this method out!
