Here is a simple way to make your own cross-stitched cards. I am making some for the other bees in the Japanese X and + quilting bee, as it was hard to find cards with a 'Queen Bee' inscription.
|You will need:1. masking tape; 2. plain cards, 3. your own template; 4. embroidery floss and needle|
|Fix the template to the card with masking tape - centred or not|
|I use a small pin to make the holes to avoid the card warping|
|I am making them bigger with a bigger needle|
|start cross stitching|
|Secure with some tape|
