I find sewing onto cards quite relaxing, although I do make sure I give them to folks who have some appreciation of the time involved.  This one, however, is one of the simpler pickpoint patterns which I bought from Regal who also made the three panel black base card.

I love metallic threads on a black background, and as you can see, not just gold and silver.  Black can, however be a bit hard on the eyes for fine work.  If you put a white surface beneath (e.g. cover  your lap with a white sheet) it makes it a bit easier.

Although you can write on a black surface easily with gel pens, I added a dark pink insert - there was no point being subtle, given how shiny and pink the stitching was!
