Stitched Shaped Cards + SALE

Hi! I have been getting requests to do another video on stitched shaped pieces, so I thought I would show how to create stitched shaped cards. These little critter cards are fun to make!

Today’s cards feature several Stitched Detail Dies from WPlus9. (These dies are exclusive to their site.) You can use these dies to create plush characters from felt, stitching, and stuffing. They are such fun to make! However, I wanted to share how you can use dies like these to create cards, too.

My first examples shows a pup that opens like a traditional card. I used the WPlus9 Plush Friends Pup Die and added simple stitching with DMC Floss. I created two cardtock pup panels and stitched them together on the left so it could open like a card. I also added a sentiment and lollipop made with pieces cut from the WPlus9 Sucker For You Dies. I used felt for some of the pieces.

Here you can see how the card opens to reveal a message inside. It will even stand on it’s own! Be sure to watch the video to see how this was done.

This next card also opens, but this time it is top-folding. I used the WPlus9 Plush Friends Panda Die to make a cutie panda that stands on his little feet! Although it is made of cardstock, I also added a layer of white felt on the front.

The flower elements are from the same WPlus9 Plush Friends Panda Die. To make it easier to stitch, I cut the shapes from cardstock and felt and stitched them together.

This next pup card is a bit different. The pup itself is felt with cardstock on the back. But the little heart he is holding opens up to reveal a message inside. I again used the WPlus9 Plush Friends Pup Die. It includes all the pieces I used on this card.

I added extra stitching details to the flower and leaves and I LOVED doing it!

Here you can see how the heart comes out of his paws and opens to show the greeting. This would make a cute keepsake! Oh – and he fits nicely in a regular card envelope.

This next cutie is similar, but also holds a gift card. I again used the WPlus9 Plush Friends Pup Die to create the pup and heart… but added an ice cream cone made with the WPlus9 Sweet On You Dies.

When you take out the heart, there is a gift card, also.

If you want to, you could skip the heart card and just have him hold the gift card alone! What a fun way to present a gift card to someone.

You can also use the WPlus9 Plush Friends Pup Die to create a pig! I added my felt/stitched pig to the front of a white notecard and added a “hey” WPlus9 Hey Hi Hello Die cut. The hearts are from the WPlus9 Plush Friends Pup Die. This option is fun if you want to create a traditional shaped card.

Finally, I have a fun bonus card using the new WPlus9 Stuck On You Dies. These are SO much fun to stitch with! Not much stitching is needed, so they are pretty quick to make. To help with the stitching, each of the felt pieces are backed with cardstock.

I added a few beads to the top with strong adhesive… and a WPlus9 Hand Lettered Hello Die sentiment.

  1. I always love your ideas Jennifer and appreciate you sharing them with us! I just ordered these dies a few days ago so am excited to receive them and get started!

  2. Is the full price of the Plush Pup stamp set $ 22? The wording that the discount is reflected in the cart has me confused. Usually when I read that, the cart shows $22 and then the discount.

  3. OMG ! I love your cards. Specially the dog is really cute and reminds me my H’Ichi, a nearly 6 years old Leavitt Old English Bulldog. I will definitively get this dies set and create cards with her colors, so she will be the one “sending” hugs and (wet !!!) kisses – LOL !

  4. Hi Jennifer
    These critters are unbelievable. Cuteness overload ❤️ I just love the stitching detail. Wow I want these. I have never shopped with WPlus9, I’m so thankful you introduced me to the brand. Amazing job on your cards, they are so fun & cheerful. They would definitely make someone’s day to receive these in the mail. You also have inspired me to try stitching on a card!! I still haven’t tried it, I need to get some needles and floss. Thanks for this video. Take care

  5. Oh my goodness, these are SO cute! I immediately put the dies you used for the dog cards on my wishlist. Thank you for the inspiration and enabling 🙂 !

    1. I am so sorry about that! We do have more anticipated to arrive in about 5 days and another shipment shortly thereafter. You can sigh up to receive and email as soon as they are available from the product page.

  6. Will admit they are so yummy scrummy in the cuteness department. Sad to see website only as I can’t afford the huge shipping Fee’s, never mind. Jennifer I will just have to buy all the supplies and have them delivered to yours so that I can let you do the work and I will send you the addresses and stamps lol.
    Keep up all the brain power on all these fab examples, looking forward to the next.x

  7. OMG! I am blown away! These are AMAZING! I am sooooo jealous of your endless creativity, and genius talent. You never cease to amaze me. I want to quit my day job and copy EVERYTHING you create.
    Thank you so much for breaking my crafting budget yet AGAIN. My husband is thankful that the stores are sold out of these supplies. I, however, am go into shopping withdrawal.

  8. Really enjoyed this . But are you really able to do this on the treadmill 🏃🏻‍♀️😅 does it increase the benefits

  9. Love these! The pup was sold out but I ordered the panda and both sweets sets. And set up the notify for when the pup is available again! Such cute cards!

  10. I can’t remember the last time I stitched on a card! You are convincing me it needs to be done. I did recently show Sequoia how to do a little stitching, so cards like these would be a great project for gramma-granddaughter time. Soon. . . .

  11. I love these cards. What adorable cards and such an amazing creation. Thank you for the in depth video 🙂 I appreciate all the time you put into your videos.

  12. My mind has been spinning with ideas for these sweet, sweet dies Jennifer. From birthday cards, to decorations for baby showers, there are just so many possibilities. Thanks so much for sharing the darling creations and I hope you were able to find crafty time with the sweet Lila. Have a great week. ~HUGS~

  13. Can there be any cuter cards than these? I can’t believe the plush pup is SOLD OUT, but luckily I was able to buy the panda and the ice cream cone one. I keep on telling myself no more purchases, but you make it super difficult with all the awesome cards you make. Thanks for your creativity and for sharing it with us. After long days at work, watching your videos is my way to de-compress and relieve my stress!

  14. These look like so much fun! I love to stitch and this would be great for adding to my card making! Thanks for sharing these, your cards are so cute!

  15. I really had no interest in making these stitched cards …wait for it… until I watched your video; lol, and they are adorable! I’m afraid these guys will have to wait in line as I have other projects planned first, but when I do, it will be a wonderful way for me to use up my embroidery thread from my crosstich days that currently only gets used for string on balloons & kites.
