Chris says that the cards I designed this year are my best ever and I agree. Ideas came to me much easier this year and all of the cards were fun to make. You saw my sun printed star cards last week. This week I'll share my 3 other designs.
This design started with those little hologram fabric swatches. I have no idea when or how I got these. I know that Estelle has some and she thinks she got them from me. I've had them in one of my treasure bins for years so I pulled them out and committed to make something with them. I pulled 2 silk fabrics to go with them and decided to try out a Merry Christmas screen that I burned a few years ago.
Here's the result.
I did a little foundation piecing with the purple to get the tree and then added the fuchsia screen printed piece. That wasn't quite enough so I used some Superior Razzle Dazzle thread in the bobbin to zig zag between the 2 fabrics. The edge is stitched with the same thread in the serger. I finished the trees off with a crystal star.
Here's a photo of 9 of the cards that I made to show the different tree fabrics. I made 15 all together and I do love them.
Laura liked them so much that she made 5 to send to her family in England. They are going in the mail today. Mine are yet to be addressed.
If you like these I have enough leftovers (holographic samples and silk fabric) to make a few cards. If you would my leftovers to make some cards for yourself let me know in the comments. If more than 1 person wants them I'll draw a winner tomorrow.
Today I'm linking up at Freemotion by the River.
UPDATE: Gene B won the scrap bits!
