Birthday at Craft Rocket

Birthday.

I've made this card for my husband's birthday, he's a bit of a petrol head so it seemed appropriate!


The chart is from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine stitched on 28 count evenweave 2 over 1 using the recommended DMC threads.  The sentiment is hand stamped and is by Little Claire designs.  The card, paper and pearls are from my stash.

I've made some Easter cards using charts from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards maagazine vol 9

I've never tried blackwork before, it was fairly easy, just making patterns with backstitch.  I stitched all three of these in an afternoon and they were quick to make into cards too.
