Valentines Day Cards PLUS free design

Last year I did a guest blog on the Craftsy website and showed how to create Valentine's day Day cards.

Hope you enjoy again this year!!

xoxo Sue



Show someone you love them with just a few stickers, a little bit of paper and your embroidery machine! That’s right, we’re stitching in-the-hoop on paper! You’re going to fall in love with in-the-hoop gifts once you see how fast and fun stitching up these greeting cards can be!
Today, I’m sharing with you a few great tricks on working with paper to get the best results on your Valentine’s Day card. It’s sure to make your sweetheart fall in love with you all over again.

In-the-hoop Valentine’s Day card tutorial

Materials needed:

  • Embroidery design with low density stitching (Check out the FREE Box of Chocolates design from Sealed With A Stitch from the Enchanted Love Collection)
  • 8” square (or large enough to fit the hoop) sticky stabilizer, such as the Bosal Stick and Peel
  • 4 ½” square iron-on batting, such as the Bosal Fusible Batting
  • Size 11 embroidery needle
  • 40wt embroidery thread in top and 60wt bobbin thread
  • 2 print scrapbook paper 8 ½” by 11”
  • 2 solid scrapbook cardstock weight paper 8 ½” by 11”
  • Double stick adhesive dispenser for scrapbooking
  • Glue pen or glue stick for fabric
  • Valentine’s Day stickers
  • Sticky borders
  • Envelope to put card in (optional)

Tools needed:

  • Hoop with a 4” by 4” hoop (100mm by 100mm)
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Mat
  • Straight pin (for perforating the sticky stabilizer)
  • Dry iron
  • Paper scissors
  • Mechanical pencil
  • Basic sewing supplies


Now, lets make a Valentine!


Step 1: Prepare embroidery materials

From one of the solid cardstock pieces, cut a 5” square. With a dry iron press the fusible side of the iron-on batting to the wrong side of the cardstock square.
Note: You can also use iron-on woven interfacing, except the batting gives a little plushness to the card.

Step 2: Embroidery

Hoop sticky stabilizer and use straight pin to perforate the paper. Peel paper away to reveal the adhesive. Place the cardstock square centered within the hoop.
Note: It is a good idea to change your embroidery needles every 6-8 hours of use. Save those old needles for paper.
 Once embroidery is complete, remove hoop from machine, stabilizer from hoop. Cut 4 to 5 angles to create a unique shape to frame your embroidery.





Step 3: Decorate top

Fold the second piece of solid cardstock in half widthwise. This is the main card. Cut one of the printed papers 3” tall x the width of the front. Use the double stick adhesive dispenser on the wrong side along all four edges of the printed paper. Place the print paper aligning edges along top corners of the front.









Step 4: Decorate middle

Cut second piece of print paper so it is on angle. Trace the paper from the wrong side with mechanical pencil and cut on drawn line with scissors. Use the double stick adhesive dispenser on the wrong side along all four edges. Place the print paper aligning edges along the sides.
Note: All prints will vary, find what works best for your card. Card below from the upper top right down measures ½” – from the bottom right corner measures up 2”.


Step 5: Embroidered piece

Use fabric glue stick on wrong side of embroidered piece.
Use the sticky borders to cover all sides of the embroidered piece.



Step 6: Stickers and pocket

Audition stickers before permanently placing them. Once in LOVE with your card, firmly press the stickers down. With the leftover front top paper you can make a pocket inside for candy.
Measures 3” square. Use the sticky borders on three sides leaving the top open for the candies to go inside. Use more stickers inside your card to complete the look.
Once you have finished decorating your In The Hoop Valentines Day card you will want to make more, I promise. They are lots of fast, fun, and easy to create!

Hanging up Rulers

Maybe you don't have a hammer and nails. Could be you don't want to break a pretty newly polish fingernail. Perhaps you just don't have the time. Or maybe you are like me and the thought of putting another hole into your walls makes you cringe. Either way...hanging up your rulers doesn't have to be a big deal. For a few dollars (thanks to the help with a Sunday's paper coupon) all I used was some of those 3M Command strips hooks. The best ones I found was the small .5lb wire size. Worked like a charm. Check it out. Figure out where you like them to be, stick the red side to the hook...black to the wall as directed. Easy!  


Let us know how you keep your rulers organized for a chance to a $5 gift certificate at Sealed With A Stitch by commenting below.

Here is a New Craftsy Class we have ALL been Waiting for Embroidery Software Essentials

Many of us have had PE Design or Palette for YEARS. Taken classes, bought tutorials, and played with it. Yet, it still sits in the box or remains useless. I myself have written many of those lesson plans, taught those classes and played hundred of hours with it.


I gotta tell you, I am THRILLED to see Craftsy just released a class featuring Cynthia Hogan the Expert in this program who has been using this and teaching this program for "EVER" and it is excellent!
