  • How to stitch an embroidered card. Embroidered Cards Using Woven Labels - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather all of your supplies:
    - Woven labels (Mine were from The Dutch Label Shop)
    - Cards with matching envelopes (I used size A2)
    - Embroidery floss in various colors
    - Push pin
    - Needle
    - Foam mat
    - Pencil
    - Ruler

    Step 2

    Draw your design on the front of the card with pencil. Then using a push pin, or something similar, poke holes along your design about 1/4" apart. You may need to punch the holes closer together around curves or smaller parts. I started by placing a hole at all corners and all the places two lines met, then I filled in from there. Use a foam mat underneath your card and make sure to open the card so you don't accidentally punch through the back!

    Stitch your design using embroidery floss. I separated the strands into groups of 2. I threaded my needle so I had a loop at the end so I was actually sewing with 4 strands. I chose to not create any knots on the back of my card so it would close and lay smoother. To do this, I brought my needle up from the back of the design but didn't pull the thread all the way through, leaving a loop on the back. I brought my needle back down through the next hole and pulled my needle through the loop. This created a flat "knot".

    Hand stitch the design being careful to keep the back of the card looking nice. You will want the back of the design to look nice since it will be visible, unless you choose to cover it up with a piece of paper.

    Add the woven label underneath your design. I stitched it on with a couple stitches on each side. I love how completed the card looks once the label has been added!
