So fun!! I started my crafting as a young girl with stitching but I never think to use it in a card - but I will now (maybe ha!)
Here is a tip for you... If you use an even number of threads (2) make it a 2X longer than you normally would and fold it in half - now you have (4). Thread through the end with four threads leaving the halved/looped end at the bottom. Now sew...Stitch up through the first hole and back down through the second - when you come back in the second, take the needle between the loop of the halved threads. When you pull it tight, you no longer have to hold it or tape it. It is held securely and is neat :~)
So enjoying your tutorials and appreciate the inspiration!!
