One of the things I have been trying to do with my website redesign is update the descriptions and instructions for my cards. Last night I was looking at my Embroidered Eight Point Star and trying to remember how I stitched it well enough to write instructions. I decided it would be easiest just to make another card and while I was at it, it might as well be a Christmas card.
I chose the colors based on a beautiful variegated poinsettia my sister and I bought for our mother last year, then I found the perfect background paper in the Christmas Stack from DCWV.
The whole thing took about 2 hours start to finish even with my lousy eyesight. If you’d like to try one of your own, you can find the pattern and instructions here: http://www.handcraftedgreetings.com/card.php?card_id=00182.
