Commissioned card - Embroidered Twins


This is the commissioned card I was asked to make at the end of July,  the twins were not born then but I made it as far I could,  then my customer fell off the face of the earth so to speak.  
A week ago I re-listed on etsy to see if I could sell it,  one week later my customer was back and still wanting the card,   It is now finished and winging its way across the pond,   So now I can show you.

Gosh its been a long time since I put a card on my blog,  its embroidered  with pink, blue and gold metallic thread,   I use the outlines for the cradles from a peel off sheet,   and then stitched them on some oil based card that shines different colours in the light. 

 Placed them on a rainbow paper and then stitched around the outside with gold metallic thread.

The card is an 8 by 8 square,  scalloped edged.

There are hours of work in this card,  I was so upset with all the work I put in and then thought it was not going to sell.  
Oh well all ends well in the end. 
I hope she likes it when it arrives.

Have a nice weekend and take care

  8. Lovely card Margaret. As one card stitcher to another I don't think people quite realise how long it takes to do the stitching and then you have to present it in keeping with the theme. I am so glad your customer came back.
