How to Embroider a Greeting Cardcomments (14) February 4th, 2016
Now, what kind of floss to use? Here, you can see several options: from left to right, they are pearl cotton, crewel wool, and six-strand embroidery floss (six strands, three strands, and two strands). As you can see, the thinner the floss you use, the more those holes in the paper show. So I like to stick to thicker flosses when I stitch on paper.
I never use knots when I stitch on paper, because they make it hard to cover up the back of your work later. Instead, cut yourself a lot of small pieces of masking tape, and have them handy while you work. Use them to stick down the ends of the floss when you begin and end a strand.
