Cross stitch Valentine card

Stitching Lotus hosts Small Sals. The idea is to share any small but completed projects each month. I have set myself the target to make 10 handmade cards this year, one more than I did last year. I have a fair amount of aida and two boxes full of DMC threads, and any number of cards waiting for a little nugget of cross stitch. So,what better to do than have a bash at some handmade cross stitch cards. This first one was pretty easy as I had a card with a heart shape aperture, so all I had to do was stitch it to fit.

I shall use it for a Valentine card, but it could easily be for anyone you care for…
