Valentine Greeting Card with Appliqué

For these greeting cards we used the design from the Valentine Doves Appliqué.

You will need card stock for cardmaking which is available in most craft stores in a variety of colors and sizes. You will also need pieces of fabric for the applique, self-adhesive tear-away stabilizer, a sharp 75/11 needle and 40-weight rayon or polyester embroidery threads. If you prefer cotton threads, use 60-weight ones.

Step One: Out of the cardstock, cut a rectangle that will fit inside your hoop. For a 5" x 7" hoop, this size is approximately 12" x 8". Fold it to get a card about 6" x 8". Hoop the self-adhesive stabilizer. Remove the paper which covers the sticky side inside the hoop. Stick the cardstack onto it.

Step Two: Start embroidering. The machine will embroider a shape and stop. Place a piece of red fabric over the shape and start the machine. It will embroider the shape again and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine and with a pair of sharp scissors cut away the excess fabric as close to the outline as possible.

Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine. It will make the outline of the first dove and stop.

Step Five: Place a piece of fabric over the shape and start the machine. It will embroider the outline again and stop.

Step Six: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the excess fabric as close to the outline as possible.

Step Seven: Repeat steps Four through Six for the second dove.

Step Eight: Return the hoop into the machine to finish the raw edges of the fabric.

Step Nine: Take the working piece from the hoop. Cut away the excess stabilizer.

The greeting card is ready. Enjoy!
