Pauline's card has a beautiful snowflake on the front. The colours are very delicate and the stitching is exquisite! Pauline has also added some rhinestones for a touch of sparkle which, is just perfect for Christmas. I really love my card.... thank you Pauline!!
This is the card I sent. It was a lot of fun deciding what to make and send and I decided on one of my favourite themes.... a snowman!
He was quick to make using a fusible applique method finished off with buttonhole stitch. I added a few little embroidered details and I also added a little bit of sparkle with some sequin snowflakes.
However, the most exciting thing for me was creating the reverse side of the card which I made by printing (through my printer) an imagine onto some plain white muslin. I used Kathy Shaw's excellent tutorial which, I knew about through participating in her crazy quilt classes but, had been too nervous to try before! I was worried about damaging the printer but, it worked like a charm. It opens up a whole world of possibilities!
