As per usual, I could't resist picking up something new to try last time I was in Hobbycraft. This tool is called "Sew easy" - it's a circular stamp which make holes in different patterns for you to then stitch. I love the idea, can't say it worked that well on card, it made indents and I had to go over it and make the holes with a pin. However you are supposed to do it on a foam surface, and I just used my cutting mat.
I love the simple idea though, and it looks great finished. Next time I'll try some multi-coloured or glittery thread.
I made stitched Christmas cards a while back using a printed pattern, but this is more fun!
