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.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
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.
The Stitched Sentiments ( WFF | SSS | SBC ) stamp set includes the perfect sentiments for cards with stitchables.
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.

I love the winter cards. Good job. Very nice cards. TY for sharing.
These are so cute! I used to love needle work! Do have the eyes for it anymore! Plus I am on blood thinners, repeated missed sticks could get messy! ??❤️
Darling card ideas. Lovely work. And so many to see! This post is a bonus in so many ways. Thank you for this great tutorial.
These have taken on the look of the Christmas Season 100%. Love them!
Oh … my … gosh!!! I absolutely LOVE your cards!! How incredibly adorable and special. There’s no way I could pick a favorite because I love them all. What a unique idea from Waffle Flower. Before I got into paper crafting, I was a big stitcher for many … many years (since the 7th grade when I learned how to stitch). Unfortunately my eye sight isn’t what it used to be which makes cross-stitching too difficult any longer, but I think I could manage something like this. The marriage of 2 favorite crafts!! Right now I’m restricted from buying craft supplies because I’m in the process of trying to buy my first home (EEK!!), but I’m keeping my eye out for product to pick up once I’m on the other side of this process. Thank you so much for this wonderful video, Vicky! Enjoy the day!
Fantastic. Arcs. Thank you for the great tips.
It’s so beautiful card!
all of the cards is so beautiful i love your work
LOVE IT ALL! The tiny cacti are so adorable! I really like how you used different paper colors– this makes such a difference! I have to start stitching for my Christmas cards. These are so special, no one will toss them out! Thank you for your inspiration, my order has been placed, I’m just waiting for my products to arrive!
These are so cute. I just love the stitching dies. Thank you for sharing
