Inside of the card:
I decided this year on Valentine's Day to express my geekly love in the form of a hand stitched card. I'm not a paper crafter and I've never stitched on cards before, but I've seen some of the cool things people have posted here, so I decided to just wing it. (I've since seen there are plenty of instructions out there and some even in the books I have in my own collection...I could have saved myself a lot of mistakes, frustration and possibly my sore fingers!) Anyway, I wanted it to look like a hand written love note, so instead of using a computer font, I just wrote the words out by hand in pencil and then stitched over them. In the end, despite the paper not staying down the way I wanted it to and the glue making the multiple layers of paper/cardstock a little wonky, I was happy how it turned it and I learned a lot for next time. My husband loved it too...I guess we're two peas in a geeky little pod!
