Recently I did the Sublime Stitching Swap, and I wanted to do something other than teatowels. I just started stitching the Craftopia patterns on some scrap fabric I had, not having any clue what I was going to do with them. I happened to be walking through Target one day and found silver notecards that I realized would look great with the scrap fabric, thus the crafty cards were born:

This one is by far my favorite!!

I used metallic floss for the first time on these. It didn't give me a hard time at all.

I really like this one too.

And the sewing machine.

I used mostly backstitch, with satin stitch, stem stitch and split stitch. The only thing I'd do differently next time is put the interfacing on the fabric before embroidering, as when I put on the interfacing, the stitches got squished. But since I didn't know what I was making when I first started stitching, I didn't know I'd need interfacing.

Thanks for looking!! Comments and criticisms welcome!!

They were really easy to stitch up. I knew I wanted to do something stationary-y, but I didn't want to stitch right on the card...that's a pain, in my opinion.
