Last night we were making stitched cards at card club. I was a bit disappointed with it as the holes seemed very large and showed after stitching. This morning though I found a tip in a book which said to rub the back of the finished card with the back of a teaspoon and it certainly worked. So instead of binning my efforts I turned it into a card. Here it is.
The gold stitching doesn't show up very well as it is very fine.
