Cross Stitch Christmas Cards

There are so many boxed sets of holiday cards in stores everywhere. Here's an easy way to make yours unique and special: just add some sparkling stitches to the cards. You can transform an ordinary, or mass--produced card into a boutique style high-end greeting. Choose any color of Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid, which is the perfect size for stitching on cards.

Materials needed:

  • holiday cards (we found ours at Target)
  • #24 Tapestry needle or a crewel needle
  • Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid in a color to coordinate with your card
  • photo or blank cardstock (optional)

Instructions:

  1. The Cross Stitch is a simple stitch that basically follows a grid pattern. So we recommend starting with that. You can also do free-form stitches or specialty stitches.
  2. Using your needle, carefully punch holes where you want your stitches to go. For the cross-stitch, for instance, punch a "grid" or "pegboard" area.
  3. Thread your needle with the Very Fine #4 Braid, tie a knot in one end to secure the thread on the back of your work, and begin to stitch. Stitch your pattern as desired.
  4. When stitching is complete, you can cover the back of your work, which is actually the inside of your card, with a photo, or blank cardstock.
