Stitch the snowflake using the method illustrated and described in our Form-A-Lines stitching demo. This uses the dragonfly from the Form-A-Lines Riverside kit but the method is the same.

Go to Stitching Demo.

You will need two stitched snowflakes that are fixed back to back with double-sided tape to hide the stitching.

Cut out the shape following the general lines of the stitched snowflake and referring to the above illustrations.

Use a length of silver thread to suspend the snowflake in the aperture of the greeting card. Fix this to the card with tape.

With the inside of the card uppermost close the left hand side of the card over the aperture and fix down.

Add a Happy Christmas sticker to the card.

Product availability

We regret that we are unable to advise the reader of a source of supply for the materials used in the projects on the Card Making Inspirations web site.

The layouts and techniques used in these projects are timeless. However, products such as stamps, stickers and patterned papers are quickly discontinued to be replaced by new items. When this happens we suggest that there is a lot of satisfaction in finding an alternative product that suits the design.
