Final steps 

The last steps are to save the card, and then export it. The best way is to use Group instead of Combine since it is much easier to change the layout later if needed. 

  1. Select all the designs in the Filmstrip when holding down the CTRL-key. The background of the designs in the filmstrip turns blue. Then Go to Home tab and click on Group.

Stitching out the design 
  1. Hoop stabilizer and fabric in the 360x350mm hoop. 27 stitchout oustide wedding card.jpg
  2. Stitch out the design. Follow the instructions on your sewing machine when to turn the hoop around. I find it easier to turn the thread cutting off when making text to avoid too many loose thread ends at the back.


  1. When finished unhoop the embroidery and follow the instructions in the PDF to put the card together.
