The Red Car Greeting Card
This is a short photo tutorial on how to make a cross stitch greeting card.
First, of course, you need the cross stitch. For this greeting card for my nephew (remember, his birthday is due soon :), I've chosen a fairly complicated pattern, which I like immensely - the Red Car Parked by Permin of Copenhagen. It has several colors, single and double stranded stitches, lots of back stitch in different colors - a real miniature.
Here's a short stop motion movie I made on the making of the cross stitch picture:
Then you also need a transparency sheet, regular and decorative scissors, a ruler, a cutter, two sheets of colored cardboard size A4, white sheet of paper (for the greeting), multi purpose glue:
Fold the first sheet of colored cardboard in half, measure and cut the window opening for the picture, cut the edges with the decorative scissors:
Measure and cut a piece of transparency sheet and glue it carefully to the opening:
Carefully gauge the position of the cross stitch picture into the opening and then glue the edges of the cross stitch to the transparency piece:
Cut the second sheet of colored cardboard about a centimeter smaller than the half of the card and carefully glue it to seal the cross stitch picture:
Cut a piece of white sheet, write your greeting and glue it to the card:
Your unique card is ready to bring joy to someone special for you:
