Sooo.  I sent these out on a swap - they were very well received!

I digitized some wingding fonts in ocean themes as well as Star Trek wingdings - removed a TON of extra worthless tiny tidbits of stitches - and then made sure everything stitched out in a logical order to avoid those pesky jump stitches...

They were embroidered on handmade paper that I won in the Silly Swap (yea!  I am sooo glad I won that paper - this was the project I wanted to make with the sheets!)

and with some awesome glue in a tube from Family Dollar (definitely going to go back and clear them out of that glue probably tomorrow - it was 30 cents for two big tubes of glue! - being clearanced out - acid free for paper and fabric use according to the packaging...

I made 4 sets of 4 notecards - mostly no repeats - there was a Star Trek badges that I duplicated - oops - and I didn't have another piece of the brown paper to remake...
And I also did up a set of sheep standing on a ball of yarn that I only removed an alphabet letter from - that was my first Embird delving with this project..

And viola.. here is what I came up with... I'll show the overall shots and just a few of my favorites from the sets...

And Star Trek goodness..

I used tear away - medium weight stabilizer and just layed the handmade paper on top of it, holding it in place until it started to get a few stitches in place to hold it down on its own...

This was a fun project.  I can see making stationary for people again!

Hey!  Thanks for showing the finished product!  I'm thrilled to see it went to such great use!
The fabric with the shredded fabric really looked nice when you tore it, and the embroidery looks great.  You make me want to pull out that deckle and make another batch!  Smiley

great idea now I know what to use all my homemade paper for lol.

yes I am one of those that keeps old letter to use as scrap, I write all over them before I toss them out.


Life is a terminal disease, NO one gets out alive.....The idea is to enjoy it while you can.
