Art: Hand Stitched Note Cards

I recently started hand stitching my own note cards. I did some cross stitching when I was quite a bit younger but aside from that I have no real experience with this sort of thing...hence the simplicity of the designs.

If you're interested these are pretty easy to make. First I sketched out the design then copied it onto the card with some transfer paper. I'm pretty certain that the type of stitch I use is called a back stitch (or a variation thereof). I essentially used the trial and error method which has lead me to fairly successful results, thus far.

And just because I love her so much, here's a shot of what the Monster was doing while I was making Ops' card last weekend. Clearly she's all monster'd out.
