Stitching Cards

I’m still working on my hand stitched greeting cards. They are all pretty simple and I’m not adding much stitching so I got three done today.

 This one is stitched with running stitch and stem stitch.

 I used back stitch to applique the rectangle of fabric down and then just simple cross stitch to couch the felt down.

This one I spent a bit more time one. I used chain stitch on the blue fabric following the outlines that were already on the fabric from sun printing. Then I used blanket stitch on one edge of the felt. I’ve decided that I am going to fuse these down to the card stock so there won’t be any additional stitching.

Do you make your own greeting cards? How do you make them? I’d love to hear your methods.
