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.

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.
