Does anyone know where I can get some aperture cards from?

I do embroidery so I will need ones with a 3fold so I could hide the fabric at the back.

I'd like to find ones with a bit of detail on, if there is such a thing. My embroidery will have the greeting on eg: Happy Birthday and a pic but it'd be good if I could find some that are embossed, or some other detail.

I'm a little scared of going shopping for embelishments as I think I'll want to buy everything :mf:

any craft/card crafts store (online or in the high street) will sell these

Could you reccomend an oline store, please.

Couldn't find what I wanted on the high street plenty of aperture card but none with embossing or added detail.

I don't use them myself - i tend to emboss my own cards, but I googled and found these

no idea how good they are though. Perhaps someone else who has used these will be along shortly and give you more recommendations

Try craft creations
They have an online store and do loads of different types / designs of apeture cards..I used to do lots of cross stitch cards like this and used these a lot...

the more you buy, the cheaper they are, but the envelopes are charged seperately, so better to source these locally as they are pricey if you arent careful...hope that helps?



enjoy!
