How to add stitched words to your cards

A stitched greeting adds a special touch to your stitched greetings card. There is a free pattern featuring some of the more popular words in the Form-A-Lines free patterns section of this website.

To add your greeting print the pattern, cut out the words you want and position them on your card blank. Place the card on a pricking mat and prick out the pattern. Then stitch in the usual way using the pattern as a guide.

You can also create your own greeting with special fonts from Stitching Cards. You install a stitching font in your computer’s fonts folder and you are then ready to compose your greeting in any program that types words in a selected font.
