FO Friday - cross stitch cards

I actually have a FO to share with you all this week. I made sure I got it done in time for this Friday, since I haven't had one for ages.
I made these as thank you cards for some of my family, to say thank you for my birthday presents. They came as free kit with with this month's World of Cross Stitching magazine. I wasn't keen on the heavily patterned cards that they came with, as it all seemed a bit much when they were put together, so I made my own plain white cards to display the flowers in.


I'm pretty pleased, as I've never made cards before, and they came out really well

  3. Cross stitch is not for the faint hearted. Your cards are worthy of a place on a wall!

  4. They are so lovely. I love them. I tried to learn cross stitch back when my mom still did it, but I didn't quite understand it.

  6. Cute. It makes me wish I were still cross-stitching. But, I go through phases with my crafting so cross-stitching may come back into play in my crafting life.
