Above are a set of four embroidered snowflake cards. Each set features a different snowflake design.

In addition to the blue on white card set, I made a robin’s egg blue on kraft set.

These are my favorite I think, I love how the blue pops on the soft brown. The pictures don’t quite do them justice, definitely an area I need to keep working on.

I also created another single card that features a trio of snowflakes.

This closeup shot gives you a much better idea of how it looks in person. I used iridescent thread on metallic midnight blue cardstock, so that the card has a nice shimmer to it in the light. Click the images for links to the individual item listings, or find them all here.

Shop Update

Hello blog. I’m afraid I’ve neglected you terribly and left you to the spammers for awhile. But I’ve been busy.

I’ve been working on a series of larger scale embroidered items meant for framing. I have an idea for some even more intricate work, but that might not happen until after the holidays. And speaking of the holidays, I’ve been working away on Christmas items through September and October. Retail is a funny thing.

Seen above, a sampling of embroidered Christmas cards, including a set of four holiday snowflake cards and other new designs. Tons more work available at the shop, as usual. Lots planned for the holidays, more details soon!
