Machine Embroidery Cards on Paper or Cardstock

Oh, would I love to have an embroidery machine!  Ever since I saw the work that Chris here at Needlepointers has made, I’ve been wanting a machine of my own.

Chris is always trying new things, and her most recent endeavor has been creating machine embroidery greeting cards on card stock paper. 

And are they ever the cutest!!

Embroidered Greeting Cards

She’s created embroidery greeting cards and embroidery birthday cards, and I’m sure she’ll keep running with this fun activity of making all sorts of machine embroidery cards.

Greeting cards in the store have become so expensive and creating your own embroidered card costs a minimal amount.  You’d also be surprised at how quick it is to make!

You will end up with a rich, unique and custom card like no other. And if you have a small embroidery hoop, these cards are a nice small project to get you started with your machine.

Chris created a wonderful page with a great tutorial, along with handy tips and tricks taking you step by step and teaching you how to make greeting cards with your embroidery machine

It’s a must-see!  Once you see how easy it is to machine embroidery cards, you’ll be hooked!

And just imagine how pleased the recipient of your special handmade card will be!
