Handmade, hand-sewn card

Handmade card

This beautiful handmade card came to me from Henderica of Letters to a Vixen. The layers are quite intricate, I believe done with spots of glue, and the cut paper images (of course I love the cat in the window) are perfectly lined up.

Hand-stitched card

And check out that stitching! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not sew at all, so this is a marvel to me. The thread is multicolored, and the paper is sort of opalescent. A beautiful offering, and I felt spoiled to receive it.
