A set of six new Christmas bead patterns are available for purchase from the Stitching Cards web site. The prick and stitch patterns feature bead snowflakes, a bead angel, bead bells and holly, a bead candle and holly, bead holly and a bow and a bead Christmas tree.
I designed these patterns in response to requests for more Christmas bead cards. The original Christmas bead set was launched two years ago. It has proved very popular with stitching card makers and also the lucky recipients.
I use silver lined seed beads and bugle beads for my cards. These glitter like tiny jewels and give a sophisticated appearance to the cards.
