I'm not sure whether to put this in the machine embroidery section or here, because it has a bit of machine embroidery, but the rest is handmade...soo...it'll go here for now

It's a fabric covered embroidery embellished card.  You can embroider directly on cardstock, but it seems to have a tendency to punch through, and I like the look of it with fabric on top anyway.  I just spray fixed the fabric onto the card when I finished the embroidery, and then did a few decorative stitches around the edges to secure it on and make it look pretty Smiley  I then hand stitched a little tag for the front, to give it a bit more of a personal touch.  My fanged studio bunny helped with the interior.

To finish the card, I just stitched a seam along the top to secure the written note.  Again, you could just write directly on the cardstock, but I like embellishing Smiley
