Tutorial: Christmas card

This is a tutorial on how to create a silk ribbon card - for Christmas or possibly a thank you card.

First, create an embroidered sentiment. You will need a good three inches of fabric around the pattern.

2. Remove the embroidery and iron out the piece. Place the ironed embroidery within your card opening. Using your erasable pen, mark the edges of the embroidery to ensure proper placement.

3. Cut a piece of card stock to fit the interior of the card. Some cards supplied for embroidery will likely have a card supplied. Trifold cards will eliminate this step :)

Use double sided tape or adhesive squares to adhere embroidery to the card. Place the embroidery into the card and secure with more double sided tape. Place the card underneath something flat so that it will bond evenly.

4. Marvel at your creativity!
