vgbuttons I tried to use the link you gave and I can't get it to work. Am I not getting the right place? I love your card!!! Do you do them freehand? Is it done on a machine or do you do it yourself (that doesn't make sence but can't think how to ask what I want to know lol hehehe)

Do you do cards for all seasons? Like Christmas and birthdays?
Great idea!!! Let us see more if you have them.

Greeting Cards

All done by hand and one at a time. They may come out different depending on style. Use 100 % rayon floss on most of them. Do all Occasions as well as Holidays.
They might be having trouble getting into that spot but try

under homemade cards
That ought to work

Those are neat! How long does it take you to make a card? That's something I have never seen!

vgbuttons I checked out the web site and found some really neat things there.

The Christmas card is great. Like 64squares asked = how long does it take you to make them?

That's a neat one too--how long did it take you to make it? Are the words stamped, embroidered or what? You said the design is all hand embroidered, though, right? No machine involved? Wow!

Embroidery cards

Yes, 64 Squares
My cards are all hand sewn. I punch the holes first, that takes the longest time. It depends on the difficulty of the pattern to how long it takes per card. It's really hard to tell ya. Some with not much detail will take an hour after punching holes and some might take all day to sew. I use the rayon floss and sometimes the cotton floss . The Christmas ones I usually like to use the metallic floss. The lettering is usually stamped and Embossed. Some cards are just stamped. But I like the Embossing best.
I also have tried the 3d crystal lacquer applied to some of my stamps and that is really beautiful.
I usually punch holes in a lot of my cards one day, then I sew the next day then I take one day to do the backing that hides the stitches and another day for the embossing and there you go. You have some beautiful cards that you can send to people. My friends call my cards "Real Keepers".

Wow--You would hope the cards are "keepers" after putting that much time into it! I do rubber stamping, and each card I do is usually one of a kind. I just remembered I have some pictures I can attach of some of my cards! Let's see--which one shall I attach?
