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!!

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 hand made card will be!

This page here is full of designs to use on your cards. Go check out the “How to page”, then come back here to find some beautiful, fun and creative designs to begin your greeting cards. 

On this page you’ll find a host of links to a wide variety of designs to be printed on paper. Holiday card designs are very popular, of which you will find many.

There are also many very creative designs for other holidays, birthdays, sympathy, thank you notes, and milestone cards.

Remember that embroidery on paper isn’t just for cards!  You’ll find fun and festive designs for gift tags, bookmarks, gift card holders and ornaments as well.

We even found a tutorial for you on using your machine to embroider designs on doilies!

Some of the pages with the designs also include tutorials on making the cards and other paper designs. You will find many complete lists of supplies necessary for this craft.

Be sure to check out the links to large collections of patterns on Amazon.  We did the work to put them right at your fingertips!

Once you see the offerings we have, you will want to make some pretty cards for yourself to send notes the old-fashioned way.  Or better yet, make up a set to give as a gift!

It’s always a treat to receive a card in the mail! Especially a handmade card just for you!
