stitched floral mother's day card

Remembering mom on Mother’s Day is always special. Giving her a hand-made card with real stitchery is even more special to her, especially if she sews!
Step 1

On a blank card, draw a curvy line representing a stem with your pencil.

Step 2

Open the card and position the front with the pencil drawing over a piece of Styrofoam®.

Step 3

Use a needle and poke holes over the pencil marks leaving about a ¼" between each hole.
TIP: The needle will poke through the card and into the Styrofoam®.

Step 4

Once the holes are poked, you can erase the pencil marks.

Step 5

Thread the needle with embroidery floss and hand-stitch the stems.

Step 6

Now, cut small leaf shapes out of cardstock. To add a bit of definition to them rub the sides onto an ink pad and glue them to the ends of the stitched stems.

Step 7

Hot glue the paper flower embellishments over the cluster of leaves.

Step 8

Add a sticker for a greeting.

Step 9
Take a purple ink pad and rub it around the outside of the card to make a border.
