Stitched Tree Card

Hi friends! It’s Jaclyn sharing a fun way to add embroidery to this season’s Christmas cards. I find embroidery and stitching to be incredibly soothing. It’s something you can even do while watching TV, or  your kid’s athletic games.

Here are the supplies you will need for today’s project:

  • Peapod and Maraschino Twine
  • Needlepoint Needle
  • Paper Piercer
  • Pattern (You can find many patterns for embroidery on the Web. I found my pattern HERE.)

Print out your pattern template and attach it to your card front. Pierce holes through your card stock using the pattern guide. It should look like this:
twinery_xmastreepatternBecause the twine is a tad bit too thick for this project, I separated it into 2 strands instead of 4. This is something that is very common in needlepoint. It’s very easy to do. Just grasp two strands and SLOWLY pull them apart allowing them to unravel as you go. Thread up your needle and begin stitching according to the diagram in the pattern. Once you are finished, you can slap your embroidered card stock onto the front of a card with a sentiment and other embellishment.
