I did the stitching by hand. Both of my machines are broken... plus this way, I was able to use thicker thread. It shows up nicer... but it does make the card bulkier. I hope you already have Vintage Postcard stamp set. I can't seem to get away from it. Love using it with everything and everywhere. It just adds a nice little extra stamped over the designer paper.
