Hi! Today I am sharing lots of ideas on how you can use the Stitchable dies by Waffle Flower Crafts!
There is a whole collection of stitchables, in various shapes and sizes including lovely shapes for the holidays. In the video below I will walk you through them and I will mainly focus on how you can turn these die cuts into cards after you stitch them.
If you want to see a beginner’s video with tons of tips and tricks on how to stitch on paper check this one, created by Nina. These are the guidlines that I followed to end up with a neat and flat back without any knots.

I include close-up photos on all the designs where you can clearly see the patterns I used. They are all free patterns I find online that I slightly modify to fit them in the paper canvas I am working on each time.
Stitchable Hearts Die
I used 3 shades of pink on my hearts for an ombre look. I like to keep these cards clean and simple, after all the beauty of sttching and the time you spend making your focal points doesn’t need much more to make the card special!
In the close up photo you can see that I used 3 rows for each color.
Stitchable Squares Die
For this one I created 3 different cacti. Aren’t they adorable?
In the close-up photo you can see the patterns better, I mixed different shades of green for interest. A big plus is that it’s not really time consuming since just a few stitches make those lovely cacti!
And here is the message on the inspide of the card, that finishes it nicely.
Stitchable Mitten Die
For the mitten I used cardstock in the same color as my thread. This way I avoid having a white border and it really compliments the design.
I created a basic snowflake in the middle, a very popular pattern when it comes to cross-stitching.
Stitchable Christmas Stocking Die
For this one I went traditional, good old Santa’s stocking in white and red.
Stitchable Beanie Die
For my beanie I went with greens and beige and I created a row of tiny hearts. They are not perfectly aligned but I am not really bothered. I think it looks adorable!
Stitchable Sweater Die
Nor for this one I was going for one of thse ugly Christmas sweaters… but really can you call this one ugly?!
Rudolf has a little gemstone on his nose bt you can instead ass a red cross-stitch in place.
Stitchable Pinking Square Die
Here is a bigger area where you can stitch larger patterns. I went with this sweet cupcake but really the sky is the limit for this size!
Since this was a square stitchable I created a little square 4×4 notecard to complete it. Guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient.
