Unique, Beautiful Greetings and All Things Crafty!

Why did I decide to do this full time? Well, back in 2009, I started making a lot of birthday cards for family and friends. Before I realised what had happened, I ended up with a large surplus of cards and decided to try selling them. I was delighted, but not entirely surprised, to find that other people liked my work too. CrossStitchCards was born.

Although I don't stock seasonal items all year round, I DO have them in stock, so PLEASE ASK! I am happy to send pictures and set up a custom listing for you.

I have expanded my product line to include cross stitched coasters, bookmarks, and my own cross stitch designs, as well as dabbling in the world of crochet. I love to learn new crafts.

During 2013 I relocated from California, USA, to March, UK, and have reopened my store. I still offer WorldWide shipping, so if you have purchased from me before, you will be able to continue doing so. I am always happy to hear from anyone with questions about my products and services, so get in touch! I have a destash store where I am selling off some of my old patterns, kits, books, fabric and other crafting supplies, including buttons and paper embellishments. You can find this here:

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about my items, or stores!

Cross Stitch is an art requiring patience and precision. Card making is also an art requiring skill. I have put the two together in a way that makes giving and receiving my cards a very pleasurable experience for all parties. My cards are not necessarily for the causal well wisher. They are for those occasions when a store bought card will not do.

Over three hours go into the design and manufacture of these cards, and each one is unique. The are cards that can become family heirlooms or even be framed and hung in your house. They are worthy of display!

Display is exactly what my home decor items are all about too! Put these beautiful pieces on display in your home and you'll always have a talking point. I love cross stitching and it has become so much more than a casual hobby to me. It is my passion! That passion shows through in each of my products.

Returns and exchanges
I do not normally accept returns unless the item is not as described. However, I will consider returns on a case by case basis. Buyer will be responsible for return shipping costs.

I do not accept returns for custom orders, after all, your item has been created to your specifications and I may not be able to resell it to someone else.

Returns are also not accepted for the digital files that contain my original cross stitch patterns.

If you feel dissatisfied with any item I have sent you, please contact me straight away so that we can resolve the situation together - communication is the key!

I welcome contact from anyone with questions about my items. I am happy to discuss any problems with items that I have sold and will do my best to resolve issues quickly. I can be contacted through Etsy's messaging service or at Gail [!at], and will respond as quickly as possible, even just to acknowledge the initial receipt of your query, before we work on a resolution together.
I accept Paypal and Direct Checkout in my store for online transactions. I want us to enjoy every transaction we have with each other so please contact me as soon as possible if there are any payment issues, so that we can work together to resolve the problem.

Remember - the sooner you pay, the sooner your items can get shipped!
Your items will be wrapped and packed securely. I want you to receive everything in the same perfect condition as when they were first made. My shipping costs reflect actual shipping rates from the UK, plus a £1 charge for handling (packing and travel to the Post Office). If there is an overpayment of shipping costs that exceeds £1.00, I will process a refund for you. Occasionally, purchasing multiple items can cause an overpayment to occur, and a refund may be due in those cases.


I can get to the Post Office most days and can usually get your items posted same or next day after cleared payment is received, certainly within 3 business days. I will always email you to let you know when your item is on its way.

If you require tracking on an item, please contact me before purchase, so that I can work out the extra cost for you.

I will ship worldwide. Details are given within each listing, although you are welcome to contact me for confirmation of any shipping prices. Please note that the buyer will be responsible for any and all customs charges associated with your shipment. I will give accurate value information on the customs form.

Please note that I am unable to advise on the charges that overseas customs may impose.
Additional policies and FAQs
I enjoy what I do. I would like you to enjoy my work too, but I cannot spend all day stitching (although my husband thinks I do!). I will try to give an accurate timescale for custom orders, but as you know, cross stitching takes time - please be patient and try to give me adequate notice for a custom piece. I do not rush my work, and will not offer a substandard piece for sale!
