Hand-stitched stationery cards
There are so many ways to create personalized stationery cards. We used card stock, a needle and some embroidery floss to create ours. The patterns are simple and you can create your own or find a pattern you like and use that! You can add to an existing or store bought card or you can create a design of your own. No matter which route you go, this personalized greeting is guaranteed to make the recipient smile.
