Judging from my technique poll, a lot of people want to see some new embroidery patterns. You're in luck! I was commissioned to make a card for a new baby girl this week. I was given free reign on the medium and design, so I decided to go with embroidery. Here is the result:
It took a considerable amount of time to stitch. I tried some traditional embroidery stitches that I haven't done on a card before, like the lazy daisy and french knot. They lazy daisy is a little tricky, since you can't put a needle in one hole and out another simultaneously on a card like you can on cloth. It took a little more time and was a bit more challenging than doing the same stitch on cloth, but I really like the results. I'll probably be using this stitch again in future patterns.
