Apple Prick and Stitch Embroidery Card

Design a very easy card for any occasion using the prick and stitch method. I chose an apple image that I found on the Internet. Then using a yarn needle I just pricked holes around the image. Then I went back using embroidery thread and stitched the outline. Super simple! I finished the card with an embroidery thread bow.

Materials Needed:
