Yes, absolutely, according to Susan!
She has created a wonderful tutorial so you can make them as well!
(pictured card is made using the steps below)
There is nothing nicer than giving a hand made card and its so lovely to receive one too!
I use a white tri-fold card (a card where one side folds inside the card see picture) with an aperture round or
oblong. I choose white because I usually use a white background for the embroidery
I lie my embroidery piece flat on a surface and hold the aperture over it so that the image is in the middle of the Aperture just so I can make sure it fits and then I can cut off some of the extra material around the image
On the inside of the aperture I use double sided tape, this will make the material stick fast to the card
I then place the card with the sticky piece over the embroidery image and flatten, cut off the excess material being careful not to take off too much otherwise the picture wont lie flat. Turn the card over and use the double sided tape down the left hand side only and along the top and the bottom again only on the left hand side
Now fold the left hand side of the card over to the middle and press firmly
Because this card is for a man (my nephew) I have chosen to make it fairly plain. I have used a simple edging around the front of the aperture only. For a lady’s card I usually put decorative corners at each corner of the card which really sets the card off but I didn’t want to make this one look feminine
Now for the inside of the card!
Take a piece of A4 paper and cut about an inch off the top and the side, fold in half, I’ve used red for the first piece because there is red on the biker.
Use sticky tape again along the fold and place inside the card.
Use a contrasting lighter colour paper, slightly smaller than the first and once again use the sticky tape and place inside the first piece of coloured paper.
I sometimes round the corners with a punch depending on how the mood takes me
