Beautiful card. I'm sure that your best friend will treasure it.
THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
Really beautiful card!!!
Re. the questions as to how I made it : it's all fabric - the "frame" is a floral printed fabric, appliqued on as part of the embroidered design by hooping the stabilser, fabric to be embroidered (in this case white felt) AND the applique fabric together, allowing a good 2 inches of the patterned fabric outside of the hoop. The first line of stitching is the rectangle, and after that was stitched I cut out the inside of the fabric (NOT the felt and stabiliser) to leave the frame. The rest of the design satin-stitches over the cut edges then embroiders the rest - the text was added with my machine's software. There are 24 colour changes so two files to combine and LOTS of jumps to trim! I measured the design plus a border equal on all sides then cut a piece of stiff card that size and folded the edges of the fabric under and mounted it as a greetings card. (Hope that makes sense!)
Thank you, you gave easy directions to follow.
Lovely card you've made Deanna
Dianne, this is lovely, is all this done on fabric?
Do you frame it or how do you present it?
I would love to know how you made the beautiful card? Is there paper behind it?
This is so pretty Dianne. I love the colours and the frame fabric. Lenore
