Directions

STEP 1

  • Simply use Sakura of America pens to draw French knots, running stitches, lazy daisies, and other stitches on cardstock layers and die-cut frame, alphabet tags, and leaves. Practice on scrap cardstock until you’re comfortable drawing the stitches, then refer to the photo for layout ideas. Use this handy chart as a guide to create your own Penbroidery card. For best results, glue card layers together before drawing stitches. If you don’t have leaf dies, trace around the real thing to create a template.
