8 1/2" x 11" card stock in colours light enough to write on and be legible
2 1/2" fabric squares
Wonder Under or Steam A Seam or fusible web of your choice
Double Sided Tape
Rayon Embroidery Thread (optional)
Crystals, Beads or Buttons for embellishment
Cut your 8 1/2" x 11" card stock in half, then half again to get a piece 5 1/2" x 4" (trimmed) and iron on your fusible web to this card.
Your card should now look like this from the front.
Then I took one of my decorative stitches and stitched around the edge of the card. I tried using a satin stitch, but I wasn't happy with the results so I used a double edge stitch and it worked out well. This would be a great place to use some of the decorative stitches that never seem to get used - well, on my machine they don't get used.
