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. The card used for samples on this website is 300gsm (110 lbs) white hammered. We use a hammered finish card to add interest but smooth finish card stitches just as well.

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.

Tri-panel double-fold cards

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.
