Looking for a cute free christmas cross stitch idea for cards or gift tags? These ‘Good Tidings’ from 120 Celebration Cross Stitch Cards by Gillian Souter make a thoughtful and timeless gift to give the perfect festive WOW factor at Christmas!
The main chart can be stitched as a festive picture or a large card, or it can be adapted to create three smaller cards or gift tags.
You Will Need:
- Ivory 28-count linen
- DMC stranded cottons (floss): Red 349, Green 909, Blue 3838 and Cream 3865
- Coloured two-panel cards
- Double-sided tape
Full Chart: 3¼ x 4¾in (8.2 x 11.5cm)
‘Joy’: 2 x 1¾in (5 x 4cm)
‘Love’: 2¾ x 1¾in (7 x 4cm)
‘Peace’: 3¼ x 1¾in (8.2 x 4cm)
Cross stitch your chosen design using two strands of thread, following the chart below. To finish, trim ½in (1cm) around the stitched design and remove two threads from each edge. Attach the finished piece onto a two-panel card using double-sided tape.
