Cross Stitch a Greeting Card!
I love doing cross stitches, it's one my favorite craft works :)
I also love making greeting cards, birthday cards and invitation cards by myself and I'm always coming up with new card ideas. Anyways, these cross stitch cards are fairly easy and beginner friendly, I hope you enjoy making one (or some!).....

Select a simple design, prepare thread and needle,
Choose a starting point on the fabric (it's best to start from the center of any design fro cross stitching) and draw the needle from the bottom of the fabric pulling it upwards.
Keep an inch extra on the wrong side of the aida fabric and hold the extra thread with one hand (or finger) while doing the first cross stitch. You can let go the extra thread after the first cross stitch is done.
Now, you can either count the holes or the fabric threads for cross stitching, I usually count the fabric threads. But to make it easier to understand I've tried to explain both ways. Notice the fabric threads and count them as you cross stitch. I did 2X2 fabric counts for each pattern.
I didn't take the step-by-step pictures for other patterns. No matter what pattern you use keep it simple, they look cute.
