A pumpkin a day keeps the goblins away, that’s what they say, right?! Maybe a pumpkin a day would be too much, but you could create this gorgeous brightly coloured pumpkin cross stitch greeting card instead… to keep the goblins at bay.
We love this perfect seasonal pumpkin cross stitch stitched card. The specialty oatmeal Aida gives it that extra wow factor, but there’s nothing to trip you up as you grow your skills in a new hobby. This sweet pumpkin cross stitch is rich in autumnal colours will appeal just as much to more experienced stitchers, as it will to beginners.
If you have North American friends, this pumpkin cross stitch card would work perfectly to send for Thanksgiving or other fall occasions. But there’s plenty of opportunities to use them for autumn birthdays, a harvest festival or even as wedding invitations fitting the season, too. The rustic Aida gives a vintage feel to this pumpkin cross stitch card and sets off the glorious shades of red, yellow, orange, and brown – we’ve totally fallen for them!
