Memories Made Through A Christmas Card
The Christmas Card Making Kit For Adult contains everything you need to create beautiful handmade Christmas cards. It includes a step-by-step illustrated guide, instructions on how to use the materials, the recycled paper cards and tapestry skeins. You will receive 4 x Christmas Cards, each decorated with a pattern of circular baubles which you can stitch onto the front of the cards.
Each embroidery kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented boxed, branded with the product image on the front, making it ready for gifting.
Each Christmas bauble on the Christmas tree cards is worked using a woven wheel stitch which is super fun to learn. You might know the woven wheel stitch as 'rose stitch,' 'wagon wheel stitch' or even a 'woven spider stitch.' The technique reminds me of my childhood, of weaving wool around sticks, which we called back then ‘gods eyes!’
