My husband has asked me to embroider an anniversary card. I have some designs from emblibrary which are children's birthday and Valentine's design designed for cardstock. Anyone made cards like this? Any suggestions? I was thinking I could embroider a design and then attach to card stock. Thanks in advance. Becky in Texas

This is one I made on cardstock, would be nice for an anniversary, I used it for a birthday. And like the others I've stitched designs on felt or fabric and added that to a card, on top or under a cut-out frame. Lots of choices. Have fun creating one!

Great question and idea! I can see I will soon have a list of things to try that far exceeds the time to do. This is thinking outside the box. I guess I need to try that more. Thanks for opening a whole new vista. :)

I make all sorts of cards but use a combination of designs and add words with my PE design. I assemble the cards with double sided glue. Sometimes I sew onto felt which is less hassle to put on to the card other times I use fabric.

Thank you. I am thinking I will have more designs suitable for fabric than card stock.

When I first found out it was possible to embroider onto card, I made loads of greetings cards. However, there are plenty of other ways to create fantastic "cards" which are a bit more elaborate. For instance, I have made several based on the CD recycling design and more by embroidering onto handmade paper, doilies etc and then sticking onto a card blank. Cross stitch designs look particularly good stitched on linen and then the edges fringed before sticking to card.
I could go on all day!
