In all cases, it will need to be stretched and mounted or adjusted to keep it flat and straight. Sometimes padding is used This provides a padded look that can soften the appearance, Counted cross-stitch is often matted prior to framing.
Frames can be whatever colour and style that best suits.. Wider, heavier frames can work well with the heavier forms of needle art and strong images but may overpower a dainty cross-stitch with a delicate image but that being said a lot would depend on the colour and profile of the frame.
