Hand embroidered paper bookmark at Hooked on Needles

You can see a beautiful interpretation of the Stitching Cards flowering vine pattern at Mary Grace McNamara’s website Hooked on Needles.

Hand embroidered paper bookmark at Hooked on Needles

It was made as a bookmark for her Auntie’s 90th birthday. Mary embroidered it in DMC stranded embroidery floss on a mottled green card stock. After stitching she mounted the green card on larger piece of yellow card stock to hide the stitching on the back and to form an attractive border.

Since I wrote about improvising a pricking mat recently I was interested to note that Mary used a few sheets of fun foam under the card stock whilst doing the pricking.
