My second embroidered card , my card made for Viola Mahr and other 3Dcards

Hello everyone , over here in Belgium we finally have a little bit of summer now ! July and August were dreadful .

For about a year now , my email friend Viola Mahr from Singapore has been a great support and help to me . .

I've made a card for her , for all the efforts she has done and her belief and trust in me .

 I've made this flower with the two beads . A peace of sheer fabric ( cut  round and doubled  ) to go under the flower and I cut two lace leaves out of a garment 
You can see it on one of my next photo's .
This embellishes the right under corner of my card .

And a lacy bow with a white small flower on the upper left corner of my card.

 I em embroidered some curls , and added rhinestones on the top .

 I made the bird and flowers in 3D

And this is how it looks :

 And I went on with embroidering for the following card:

 First my 3 D flower ,

 These cards were bought by my girlfriend ( since I can not walk anymore ) and they  already  had the pattern on it for making the holes to embroider . It took me a whole day to embroider .

 I'm not the embroidering type at all , but my terrible pains sometimes force me to a minimum of movement .
I much rather make my 3D files such as these :

My flower embellishment with tassel and self made stickpin.

I hand stitched the oval frame .
And looped a ribbon through the holes , tied in a bow on each side .

 These hearts are free printables ,I cut them up and I used a gold metallic pen to highlight some spots and added white pearls to the flowers .

For my last card I embroidered a corner with a  cross stitch .

Thanks again to my friend I got a new punch , in the sales at pippoos . It is actually a border and corner  punch in  one . Here I only used the border punch with small leaves.  (The corner punch has a rose to brighten the corner .  Very pretty . )

 Here I made the faux stitch .

So, this is it for today , next time I will share a couple of spring cards as I learned from Christina's video tutorial on   or as you can watch here :

 Have a nice day and until  then , take care,

Hugs , Rosa
