Free easy prick and stitched Christmas card snowflake border pattern

I have been looking at the search terms that visitors have used to find this blog. “Easy stitching patterns” appears regularly. So with this in mind I have designed a Christmas pattern that should be easy for beginners to stitch. If you are not a beginner it will be good for producing quicker stitched Christmas cards.

I have made an example card from the pattern and you can see it on the right. The two vertical columns of snowflakes are stitched in Kreinik confetti pink thread and the words are stitched in red thread. I have added some vintage Christmas clipart of bells and holly to show the possibilities. You could add 3D decoupage, tea bag folding, a photograph or whatever takes your fancy.

If you would like to try my pattern you can download it from the following link:

The pattern is in a PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to view and print it. Adobe Reader software can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.

Please let me know how you get on with this pattern by using the comment link below. If you would like to display a picture of the card that you make from it please email it to me at [email protected] .

The bells and holly clip art is copyright and is used with kind permission. It is available as a free download from

  1. i have used this in various ways, i have pricked out the Happy Christmas 3 times on the card at staggered interals, and used some gitft tags cut to size and stuck on with double sided foam tape to make a card

  2. used your website for years and love your many new Christmas card designs carry on the good work I have used several of your new designs and old designs this year lovely carry on the good work Margaret

  3. Thank you. I’ve been looking for easy patterns. I had planned to volunteer teaching at a assisted living program. It may be a little too late to begin Christmas cards now (organizing a group, gathering materials etc) but I will file this and any other easy pattern for next year.

  4. It would be nice if we could just print the patterns and not have to print all the comments that have been made. We can read them on the computer and don’t really need to have a printed copy. I find printing them is just a waste of paper.

    Thank You.

  5. Do you mean that you want to print the coloured picture above, Arlene? To print just the picture right-click on it and select “Print picture” from the drop down list that appears.

    I have now added a “Printer friendly verson of this post” link. I hope this helps.
