About 'Flower Border Card Stitching Pattern'
Craft a pretty floral handmade card with this flower circle stitching pattern.
There are SO many possibilities with this pattern.
You can use it on a card front like I've done in the photo below, or you could stitch it and put it in a box frame with a photo in the middle, or even use it on your scrapbook pages!
I really enjoy making patterns that can be use for different purposes and in different colour-schemes depending on your crafting mood and the type of project you are working on.
This flower circle card stitching pattern certainly fits in with that!
How to make a card stitching card
- Print out the free card stitching pattern onto regular printed paper. The pattern can be downloaded using the buttons at the bottom of this post.
- Rough cut around the edge of the pattern and attach it to the front of a piece of hammered white card using masking tape.
- Place the card on top of a foam surface so that you will be able to prick through it. I use a piece of packing foam that I 'rescued' from an old parcel delivery.
- Use a pricking tool or similar and prick through all the dots on the pattern.
- Remove the masking tape and pattern and place to one side.
- Choose your embroidery thread colours and thread an embroidery needle with your first colour.
- Use a small piece of sticky tape to attach the end of the thread to the back of your card.
- Thread your needle through the holes in the card and stitch it, following the lines on the pattern template.
- When you get to the end of a thread, use another piece of sticky tape to attach it to the back of the card.
- When you have stitched the entire paper embroidery pattern you can cut the white hammered card to size and then stick it to a card blank.
- I used a deep purple card front. Before I stuck the card on, I cut out each of the four corners using a decorative punch and then I put some silver glitter card behind it for a bit of sparkle.
- To finish the card, I stick some butterfly peel-off stickers on to more of the glitter card, fussy-cut around the edges and stuck them to the card using 3D foam pages so that they stand out a little bit from the main card.
I hope that you enjoy stitching this flower border card stitching pattern!
