Stitching Cards customers Gemma and Angela Pickering asked us if we could design a card with a VW logo, for an uncle who is a Volkswagen enthusiast. They have sent us a picture of the resulting card they made. They added the birthday greeting with Stitching Cards words.
Maybe you know a VW enthusiast and would like to try the VW pattern for yourself. If so you can download the pattern below.
The pattern is in a PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to view and print it. Adobe Reader software can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.
