Finishing Stitchables into Cards

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our introduction to Stitchable Cards!

Day 1 - Stitchables

Day 2 - Needle and Thread

Today, we focus on the basic supplies for finishing your stitched projects into mailable cards!

Card Bases

All of our stitchables are designed for cards that fit into an A2 sized envelope. The card bases are usually 4.25" wide and 5.5" tall when folded. There are two basic ways to fold the card bases.


When the fold is along the longer edge of the card.


When the fold is along the shorter edge of the card.

The top-folding cards seem more popular in recent years but you can totally make your card go horizontal on a top-folding card if you want!

Above sample doesn't even have stitches on it! It is also trendy to leave part of the design un-stitched - perfect to add a sentiment to the card, don't you think?

Card Bases + Envelopes included in our kits

Committed card-makers usually make their own card bases from Letter-sized cardstock but in our kits, we will include a set of 4 top-folding card bases made from premium heavy weight cardstock. You will be able to tell the difference once you hold them in your hand.

You can purchase additional sets in our store here!

We are also including coordinating patterned paper in the kits for some colorful options. The patterned paper by our parent company, Waffle Flower, are all sized at 5.5" x 8.5" and can be made into an A2 side-folding card with a fold in the middle.
There are two patterns on each sheet and you can trim to add to a card as accents to help you bring out your stitched piece!

There are many paper options in the Finishing section of our store!


Sentiments are words/greetings you add to a card. For our card-makers, finding the perfect sentiment for a card is always a big part of the fun!

If you are a stamper, you can find many wonderful sentiment stamps at Waffle Flower's website. But for our Stitchable Card Kits, we are including sentiment stickers and die-cuts that are based on some popular stamps by Waffle Flower.

There will be clear stickers, gold foiled die-cut shapes, and black and white sentiment strip die-cuts! All three pictured above will be included in our first Cardmaking Kit and Want-it-all Kit to provide you with plenty of options!


We will include both double-sided sheet adhesives and foam adhesives in our Cardmaking and Want-it-all kits, along with a cute mini glue tape (tape runner / roller tape) for quick applications!
You can find some in the Finishing section of our store.

We will share videos with our subscribers with ideas to finish the stitchables into cards and we can't wait to see what you will create!

Please join us tomorrow for more info on the Kit Club and the reveal of our first kit!
