To make this cross stitch card, you’ll need:
Pre-punched card kit from 3 birds
Red Embroidery Floss
Cut about an arm’s length of embroidery floss. Split into two sets of three strands. Thread the needle, then start stitching.
I like stitching all the stitches in one direction first, then going back around to stitch all the stitches in the opposite direction.
Keep going, it won’t take that long to go around the heart one time.
To finish, you can tie the beginning and end together in a double knot, then cut the threads on the inside of the card.
Your card is ready for you to write a sappy sentiment inside!
