Embroider your own Christmas cards and thank those who are special all year long! The past couple of years have been trying for all of us and there are, undoubtedly, several people that we appreciate for their kindness. Bonnie’s Angels design set is perfect for embroidering a one-of-a-kind card.
Start by hooping a cutaway stabilizer in a 240x150 hoop and mark horizontal and vertical centering lines. Cut a 5x7 piece of heavy felt (or fabric) and mark where it centers in the hoop. Place backs of Sewtites (no affiliation) under the corner marks. (There is another tutorial using Sewtites to stitch a Christmas card here.)
Secure the top magnets to hold the fabric in place.
Put the hoop on the machine and stitch your design. I used Angel 1.
When embroidery is finished, trim stabilizer close to the design and cut just a bit off each edge of the embroidery so that it fits inside the card frame.
Glue in place. You can add another piece of fabric or cut a piece of cardstock to cover the back of the embroidery. Add a note inside. I like, “Thanks for being an angel!”
This card could be used all year long to show appreciation to all of the angels in your life!
