There’s nothing quite like snow for Christmas is there? The simple beauty of the snowflake and that fresh white-washed world have a charm that nothing else replaces. I’m a sentimental girl and nothing else but a white Christmas will do. It’s a good thing I live in Canada where most years we have plenty of it to blanket the landscape and keep things festive.
The snowflake is a timeless theme for holiday cards and one I return to over and over again. Today’s card captures the softness of snow with a big beautiful die cut felt snowflake. To really highlight the soft dimension of the felt, I’ve stitched the snowflake details down with my sewing machine.
I’m a huge fan of using felt in paper craft designs. It could be my love of sewing and textiles or my love of texture or maybe even long ago crafting memories of creating with felt as a child that draw me to it. I do know that whenever I see a felt project, it always draws me in for a closer look.
Today I’m beyond thrilled to be guest blogging for Moxie Fab World. I hope you’ll join me here for some more felt inspiration for the holidays.
Steps for Stitching a Felt Snowflake
- Lightly adhere your die cut felt snowflake to card front.
- Starting at center of the snowflake, stitch outwards to each of the six snowflake tips. This prevents distortion.
- Stitch the smaller accent “petals” of the snowflake.
My final steps were adding some beautiful tone on tone embellishments to the center of the snowflake and adding some sweet sequins around the card design. I love the subtle play of shiny versus the soft matte felt.
Quick Tip: Use a hot glue gun with adhering items to felt for a good strong bond.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Wishing you a beautiful holiday season filled with creativity and lots of beautiful white snow!
