Embroidered all-occasion cards

The last couple of days I've been experimenting with my embroidery module by making cards. It's been lots of fun and they are so cool!

I've used several different papers trying to decide what I like best. The vellum is nice and the mulberry is okay but you can't have too many leaves or whatever in the paper because it distracts from your design. I like just the colored papers with small designs on it best. What's really nice is being able to use up some of my old scrapbook papers.

I think I'm making Christmas cards this way. Guess I'd better get started, it will be here before you know it.


  1. What a cute idea! I've would never have thought of that.

  2. Very cool! I knew you'd find lots of uses for the embroidery stuff once you got your new machine!

  3. I love your cards. What font did you use on the Merry Christmas one? It is so nice! I am planning to make cards using lace designs from Emblibrary, but quite fancy your 'Merry Christmas. Really nice. Thanks for showing.

  4. Tich, all these cards were made from an OESD CD collection called "Stitched with Love". I'm sure you could still get it at your local Bernina dealer. It has 12 cards and 12 different bookmarks that I haven't tried yet!
