D.I.Y Monday! Embroidered Christmas Cards.
-Note card with envelopes. I bought a 50 pack from Hobby Lobby.
-Embroidery floss in the colors of your choice.
Print off the PDF file found here
Cut out the pattern in the dotted lines on the 2nd page and place it on the front of the card. Tape the pattern down. *Don't tape it down hard or it will tear the card once you remove the pattern!
With the tumb tack, punch holes into dots of the pattern.
CAREFULLY remove the taped on pattern from your card. If you are doing more than one, set the pattern aside to re-use it.
Following the direction on the PDF file that you printed off, embroider the card with your choice of embroidery floss. Don't worry about seeing the work on the other side. It just makes it that more special that your family and friends know that it is TRUELY handmade by you.
Personalize it with a thoughtful message and TA DA! You're done!!
Happy crafting!! I've got to do about 30 more of these...back to work!!
