You will need the following 3 files to complete this FREE craft:

1. Click to download the Pretty Bird Card Cross Stitch Pattern

2. Click to download the Card Template

3. Click to download the Envelope Template

The JPEG images will open in a new window in your browser. RIGHT CLICK on each image, and either PRINT right away or choose SAVE AS to save them on your computer to print another time.

After you have all the files, stitch up your Pretty Bird Cross Stitch…it should only take a few hours 🙂

Then follow along with the steps below to make your Cut Out Card + matching Envelope!!

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The instructions are also included with the Envelope Template and Card Template, but there are some pretty pictures below that show you exactly how to make this fun little craft!

Step 1

After you have stitched the Pretty Bird Cross Stitch Pattern, print out the Envelope and Card Template.

Print the envelope on regular-weight printer paper, and use a nice card-stock or matte photo paper for the card.

Cut out the card and envelope pieces along the outside dotted lines.

Step 1

Step 2

Fold envelope sides and bottom into center. Fold card into thirds along dotted lines, and cut out center square (shaded area). Step 2

Step 3

Tape your finished piece of stitching into the center of the card opening.

Notice the masking tape here- the previous photo shows a roll of scotch (clear) tape. I don’t recommend using it 🙂

The masking tape is much nicer to use on your aida cloth.

Step 3

Step 4

The last step uses a glue-stitck to glue the envelope bottom flap to the two side flaps. Also glue the card flap down around your taped cross stitch, being careful not to get any glue on the fabric.

That’s it, you’re done!! Don’t forget to add your name in the “Stitched by” section!

I hope you all have fun making this cute card!

I’ve been loving Raccoons lately. They are showing up in trendy fabrics on Spoonflower, artsy illustrations, or if you’re looking for a stitchy project- check out my own Raccoon with Red Chevron Cross Stitch Pattern. Here’s a sampling of some original raccoon-y things for you to be inspired by (I know I was…heehee)

Free Stained Glass Window Cross Stitch Pattern

I was browsing around on Craftsy last night, and came across a number of beautiful quilt patterns for sale. There were a few that caught my eye, because of their bright colors mixed with black outlines. So, I just had to make a pattern for you!!

I hope you like it. Its a little different from my usual style, but I like the bold, straight, modern lines paired with the softer, more traditional cross stitch motifs. The vibrant colors contrast nicely with the black edges, and I thought the crisp lines could use some softening, so I added a lacey kind of edging, and some pretty florals, too. You can make this one in any color combination- here are my two favorites: teal (which I can’t get enough of, ever.) and bright pink, which I just love when it’s paired with black.

If you’d like to download the PDF pattern, click on this link. (Both teal and pink color schemes are included)

You can save this one, and any of the other free patterns on my blog by RIGHT clicking, and choose SAVE AS. Then just put the file on your computer somewhere you will remember it 🙂

Thank you and happy stitching!
