Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clever greeting cards, embellished with hand stitching, are so unique they'll become keepsakes!

Our fabulous mother-daughter design duo has created 30 original cards for all occasions, including holidays, birthdays, births, graduations, anniversaries, get well, thank you, congratulations, and general note cards. A detailed basics section includes general embroidery information plus an overview of all the techniques and tools necessary for embroidering on paper. Embroidery stitches are taught with watercolor how-to illustrations, step-by-step instructions, and close-up photos. Full-size patterns for all projects are provided for easy transfer.

Also included is a website link to download the patterns so you can print them directly on your special paper.

  • Embroidering on paper and card stock is a relatively new idea, and this book hits the market as the cross-over craft gains momentum.
  • Fresh, original card designs have wide appeal.
  • Only book available dedicated to cards that feature hand-embroidery.
  • Link to site for downloading patterns
