Embroidered Owl Card
Miniature cards are a fun way to drop someone a quick note to say you are thinking about them. They can be tucked into a present or added to a flower arrangement. For this tutorial I have a made a mini card with a custom envelope that will put a smile on anyone’s face. The best part about this tutorial is the technique can be used over and over with different stamps.
• Light colored stamping ink
• Loose weave fabric square
• Embroidery hoop
• Embroidery needle
Step 1 – Stamp owl onto center of a scrap piece of fabric and place into embroidery hoop. Make sure to stamp with fabric weave running up and down.
Step 3 – Thread the lengths of silk into your needle and stitch over lines of feathers as shown in photo. Add small flowers by stitching 5 small dashes in a circle.
Step 4 – Using your solid colored piece of card stock, cut a section 5.5″ x 4″. Place into your Scor-Pal with the 5.5″ side running horizontal. Score at 2.75″ and fold in half to create a card with a folded size of 2.75″ x 4″.
Step 6 – Place a dot of glue near each corner of the front of the card and adhere owl fabric.
