Santa Card

Use those scraps of Christmas paper along with old greeting cards or vintage holiday postcards to create a one-of-a-kind holiday card or ornament. The best part is the embellishment: Kreinik iron-on threads give flair and visual interest while being oh-so-easy to use. You will become addicted to decorating holiday cards with this fun thread.

Materials used in our model:

  • Forest Green cardstock
  • Wreath/Sugarcookie paper from Fruitcake by Basic Grey
  • Passion Red Quills Paper from Fibermark
  • Santa Picture- Heartwarming Vintage Cuts, Christmas Time, Crafty Secrets
  • Kreinik Metallic Threads in these colors: 1/8" Ribbon 6135 Hollyberry, #16 Braid 6130 Red, #8 Braid 6130 Red
  • Tools: scissors, iron, Kreinik Adhesive Presscloth

Instructions:
Note: if your iron isn't coated with a non-stick surface, you will need to place the adhesive presscloth on the cool plate. This will keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron.

  1. First turn on your iron to it's highest setting and allow it to heat up.  Cut two pieces of green cardstock, one for your card base and one slightly larger than your Santa picture. Cut a square of Wreath paper smaller than your card back. Cut two strips of Passion Red paper for the corner.
  2. Begin assembling your card.  Attach the red strips across the bottom right corner of your Wreath paper and center the Wreath paper on your large cardstock.  Layer your Santa on the small green cardstock and place them in the top left corner of the wreath paper.
  3. Begin embellishing. Use the Iron-on Ribbon to outline your Wreath paper. (Tip: start in the middle of the bottom side, so all your corners have matching bevels)  Next, use the Red braid to add a loop pattern around your Santa and along both red stripes.  Finish your design with a flourish of red under your Santa.
