Cross Stitch Greeting Card

Make a Cute Card with your Cross Stitch Scrap Material!


1. I don’t know about you, but I hate to throw things away and I now have a basket of scraps.During the last year I’ve made a card or two by grabbing a scrap and cross stitching a heart or flower and “Happy Birthday” and gluing it to a card. I think it’s fun to make cards if you have the time!For this card I thought Winter and Snowflakes. I found some snowflake patterns from an old magazine and started stitching with some nice blues.


2. I took a white card (which measures about 6 1/2 x 5″ – the kind you buy at a craft store) and used a brush and an ink pad to get the look I wanted. You could also paint your card with watercolors, use color pencils, or ?? lots of options!


3. I finished my cross stitch!


4. I planned on sewing the cross stitch to the card using my sewing machine, so I practiced on a scrap first –


5. I put a little piece of tape under the middle of my cross stitch to keep it in place and sewed –


6.Looking good so far!


7. I didn’t want to back stitch, so I put a dab of glue on each thread on the backside –


8. I wrote “and eyelashes” inside ..It wasn’t until I was all done that I realized I had written “and” twice … oh well …


9. All Done!I haven’t decided who I’m sending my card to yet, but I know they will love it! I hope you have fun with all of your scraps and making cards


Make your own card and send me a copy! I would love to post it on my site!!
