Snow Falling on Cards

Snow Falling on Cards

This basic embroidery-on-paper project dresses up plain or dollar-store holiday cards. It takes just minutes to do, and transforms a boring design into a boutique-style sentiment, an expensive option if bought in a store. No one will ever know you used your cross-stitch metallic thread stash! Of course, Kreinik metallic colors such as 032 Pearl and 5760 Marshmallow are perfect for making crystalline coating we know as snow. 

Materials needed:

  • Greeting cards with snow scenes
  • Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid 032 Pearl or 5760 Marshmallow
  • #24 Tapestry needle (or a crewel needle if you like a sharper point for stitching on paper)
  • optional: piece of card stock or photo to cover the back of your stitched areas, and Kreink Treasure It™ 4"x6" double-sided tape

 

Instructions:

  1. Thread your needle with an 18-inch length of Braid, and begin stitching random cross stitches in the snow areas of your card. Tip: You can pre-prick the holes with your needle to make it easier.
  2. If desired, attach a piece of card stock or photo to the back of your work using the double-sided tape.
