Holiday Greeting Cards

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour® - Vanna's Choice® - Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

NOTES:

1. Materials are sufficient for multiple cards.
2. Tree and Gift Package cards are created by gluing yarn into shapes; Ornament and Initial cards are embroidered.

ORNAMENT CARD
Using compass, draw a 1 3/4 in. (4.5 cm) diameter circle onto front of a folded card. Sketch a 1/4 x 1/2 in. (6 x 13 mm) rectangle at top of circle, a small circle on top of rectangle, and a 1/2 in. (13 mm) band across width of circle. With C threaded into embroidery needle, work straight stitches over rectangle, small circle and edges of center band. Embroider straight stitch diagonal lines across center band of circle. With A threaded into embroidery needle, backstitch around remaining line of circle. If desired, glue a small piece of paper inside card to cover wrong side of embroidery.

INITIAL CARD
Sketch initial onto front of folded card. With D, threaded into embroidery needle, backstitch over outline of initial. If desired, glue a small piece of paper inside card to cover wrong side of embroidery.

TREE CARD
Mark a 1 1/2 x 3 in. (3.8 x 7.5 cm) rectangle onto cardstock. Lightly apply glue within marked rectangle. Adhere alternating short lengths of F and E to glued rectangle. Allow to dry. When dry, cut out rectangle along marked line. On reverse side of rectangle, mark centerpoint of one short side for top of tree. Draw a straight line from each lower corner to marked centerpoint for triangle sides and a straight line from centerpoint to divide triangle in half. Cut out triangle along marked side lines, then cut in half along center. Realign the triangle halves and glue to front of a folded card. Adhere a star to top of tree.

GIFT PACKAGE CARD
Cut a 1 12 in. (3.8 cm) square from cardstock. Wrap square with a doubled length of B in one direction.Thread D, doubled, into embroidery needle and weave over and under B strands. Glue square onto center of folded card. Glue a length of G across center of square and a small bow of G onto top of square.
