Our Angel & Christmas Tree cross stitch pattern will make a lovely card or gift for a loved one.
Let’s face it, the Christmas story features angels and the festive season wouldn’t be the same without them. Our Angel & Christmas Tree cross stitch pattern is created using 16 count Aida and features a golden haired angel holding a star in front of a glittering star covered tree beneath which presents in brightly colored red, blue and yellow paper are waiting to be unwrapped.
The angel is standing on a snowy background and there are sparkly stars in the background. We supply color charts for the Angel & Christmas Tree cross stitch as well as black and white symbols which make it easy to see which shades you need to use. Our recommendation is for DMC thread but you could use any other make you have in your work box. If you use 14 count Aida then your finished design will be a little larger and if you use 18 count Aida then it will be a little smaller.
The design is outlined in easy black backstitch which brings the colors into sharp focus but to give an added touch of luxury you could use sparkling gold or holographic thread. Gutermann or Glitter Superior Threads are well worth the extra couple of pounds/dollars to buy.
Angel & Christmas Tree cross stitch is a favorite design
