It's the very first time that I have embroidered on card. I am over the moon with the end result. I have put a little bling on it. The pattern is from E.L.

Very,Very Stunning!!! I saw this design on EL and didn't want it until I saw your card.Guess what? I now own this design. I only hope I can do as good as you. I also love the bling (just enough). Does the card open? PS if you see 2 messages from me it's because I don't know what happened to the 1st one. It disappeared. Thanks for your show and tell. Shirley

Hi Shirley, yes, it's a proper card and it has a white sleeve in it. Without that you couldn't write in it and have a look at the instructions Very helpful.
BTW only one message arrived. Antje

Hi toogie, I have been a member for many, many years but I never had the guts to enter anything. My English is not 100% and that held me back. I know that is stupid - but.
As I had so many nice comments I will do better from now on. I live in England but I am from Germany. Antje

While it was stitching I think my blood pressure went up to 200 !!! But I will have another go!

What a fantastic result! I've always worried that the needle would simply cut out the embrodery and I'd be left with a big hole in the card. Did you use a cutaway stabilizer?

Yes, I used cutaway stabilizer. Have a look in Embroidery Library under "Project instructions". It's very useful.

Lovely...what kind/weight of card stock did you use?

2 comments
antjemaus22 by antjemaus22 10 Nov 2018

I used just normal card stock 200 g/m but you have to use a thin sharp needle. I used a 70/10
Happy stitching!!
