Tips and Hints:

First prepare for the front of the card, by sewing the white and the silver fabrics together. Iron on a fusible web. Use the software to cut out a piece of your favorit design, we used a part of an embroidery design from PFAFF® design Collection #456 Grand Endless Holiday. Create the second embroidery using any of the fonts included in your software, type “a bright and delightful Holiday Season”. Finally create the third embroidery to be stitch on your ribbon, “Wishing You”
Save the three embroideries on your USB stick and to be able to transfer them to your embroidery machine.
Embroider the stars first, then added the text on the white fabric. Use the Design Positioning feature to place the embroideries correctly. The ribbon is embroidered on the ribbon using the Light & Tacky Tear-A-Way Stabilizer, and using the Design Positioning feature.
Add crystals to make it sparkle!
