You will need

  • 15.2 x 12.7cm (6 x 5in) 14-count Aida (use coloured Aida if you prefer)
  • Tapestry needle size 24–26
  • DMC stranded cotton (floss) as listed in
    the chart key
  • Double-fold card with a 10.2cm (4in) aperture to fit embroidery
  • Small piece of wadding (batting)
  • Double-sided adhesive tape
  • Embellishments as desired

All the cards are stitched and made up in a similar way – see the free charts for the stitch counts and design sizes.

  1. Stitch the design charted below in the centre of the fabric, using two strands of stranded cotton for cross stitch and one for backstitch.
  2. Once all stitching is complete, mount the embroidery into the card and add embellishments as desired.
  3. To make a decorative cord plait three 60cm (24in) lengths of six-stranded embroidery thread. Slip the plait over the spine of the card, knot the ends and tease out the threads for a mini tassel. The bluebell card uses Anchor Multicolor thread 1335 for the cord, the wren card uses DMC Color Variations 1345 and the primrose card uses DMC Color Variations 4050. Stick-on ceramic charms add a pretty finishing touch.
