Blank cards for stitching

In order to display the stitching at its best the card material used should not be too flimsy; it should be strong without being excessively thick.

You can either stitch onto a single sheet of card which is then mounted on a blank greetings card, or you can stitch on to a double-fold card that is a one piece solution to card stitching.

Double fold cards have three panels and thus two fold lines. The stitching is worked on the middle panel. When the stitching is complete you fold the right-hand panel inside to cover the back of the stitching.

Single-fold cards with extra rectangle

If you cannot obtain double-fold card blanks then stitching on a suitable sized rectangle of card and mounting this onto a blank greetings card is an excellent alternative. If you mount your stitched rectangle on a card of a different colour it can create an attractive border.
