All stitched on satin which I think gives a quality look and padded with a light wadding. All free designs from somewhere.

So pretty, Okay walk me through the steps. Is the embro. done on fabic? and glued to cardstock? and what are the other items on the cards, Embro. or stamps? I have never gotten up the nerve to make any cards yet. I'd like to make my Mom one for Christmas to show her what my machine can do.

Brenda - the design is stitched out on satin fabric in the 4x4 hoop,stabilised as usual. Lightly press any wrinkles from the material after removing ffrom hoop.It's then cut to size to fit behind the window. I use a very sticky double sided tape around the window to fix the material. I cut a piece of light wadding and lay that on top. I use the same tape to go around the edges of the flap (these are double fold cards)to enclose the 2 layers. The cards are availble freely in craft shops here (UK)as are the peel off finishing touches to the corners. I hope this helps and try some, it's easier than you think. Your mother is a fine age, my good wishes to her - she'll love the card you are going to make for her. Hugs Jo

I buy my cards from a local craft shop - they are freely available in different sizes and colours. I can also order any card through the shop. (I'm in UK)Hope that helps and welcome to cute enjoy your time here. Hugs Jo
