The quotation from Mother Teresa, shown in this card, is very powerful and I wanted to let it speak for itself and not to cloud it with too many other images. A simple cross stitch border serves two purposes in this card. Firstly the cross stitch border adds extra interest to the simple text stamp and secondly I used this to attach the sentiment element to the card. I pierced the holes first freehand as I was looking to achieve a 'homespun' effect. A more regular and uniform effect could have been achieved by using a ruler to pierce the holes.
