Embroider a card with a positive quote, it is so much fun to make and is appreciated by the one who gets it. For a birthday or without reason for your neighbors? Make someone happy!
And be sure, ‘Everything will be all right!’.
You can choose whether you make it for hanging or not. If you don’t like to make the hole, just stop embroidering after you finished the frame of the card.

These are the overall properties:
Look at the color sequence:
An overview of the embroidery objects:
For the embroidery objects 1 and 2 you can take the color that you will choose for object 3. (Object 1 shows you the size of the card, object 2 only sews the fabric to the stabilizer and object 3 is the background stipple stitch). For object 8 you should take the fabric color again.
Let’s start embroidering:
Hoop the stabilizer and embroider the first object.
Put the fabric on top, and be sure the rectangle is covered. Temporary adhesive spray is very useful!
Embroider all objects and finish nr 7 (the flowers). Take the hoop away from the machine
Place the Decovil on the back of the project with the glue towards the stabilizer. (Find a fitting object to put the embroidery hoop with project on, you could iron the Decovil oto the stabilizer). The next rectangle sews the Decovil to the card.
Take matching bobbin thread with the color you chose for the ouline.
After embroidering the frame, change the bobbin to white Bobbinette thread again.
Embroider the circle for the hole. Punch it out with the smallest tool of the Eyelet embroidery attachment # 82
If you don’t have it, you could also use one of the small holes of a revolging punch tool.
Embroider the last object: it’s a satin stitch circle to finish the hole.
Cut out the card with the rotary cutter and remove loose threads if necessary.
