Embroidered Snowflake Card #24XmasCrafts Advent

Snowflake card

Not only is it day 10 of my #24XmasCrafts Advent, it’s also our last monthly Bostik Bloggers Craft Challenge. The theme is snow so I’ve made an embroidered snowflake card 🙂

You will need:

A blank card
An embroidery needle
Something sharp and thin to make the holes (you can just use the needle but I found this small screwdriver easier to hold)
Embroidery thread
Sequins
Beads
A gem
Glue

Start by printing out a snowflake template and tracing it onto baking paper if you don’t have tracing paper. There are some templates here.

Using Blu Tak, attach the baking/tracing snowflake in position on the blank card. Using the needle or other pointy object, like my screwdriver, poke holes at all the points of the snowflake.

Thread your needle with your selected colour thread (I used 2 strands) and knot the end. Start embroidering your card.

When you’ve finished embroidering the snowflake, add your first sequin. Bring the needle up from the back of the card and thread the sequin on. Now thread on the bead and put the needle back down through the same hole.

Continue adding sequins and beads to each point of the snowflake.

Glue your gem to the middle of the snowflake and send it to someone special 🙂
