For some very special people I have made some very special Christmas cards. Firstly inspired by cheesy Christmas songs, cassette tape cards. Taking a piece of white felt, this fantastic template, and my sewing machine, I created an outline.
I then hand stitched song titles in embroidery thread and stuck on card blanks.
Whilst I had my sewing machine out I remembered that it has some pretty fancy stitches. So, on green fabric I outlined some triangles with straight stitch, and then added some stitched tinsel garland.
I really like the star stitch, with two colours overlapping. I didn't bother to hem the triangles, as they were then spray mounted on to cards. And finally, for MrCrafty, a Christmas narwhal card. After all, narwhals are pretty amazing animals, a cross between a unicorn and a whale. Using a (very blunt!) craft knife I cut out a narwhal outline in a piece of festive holly paper.
Used some blue shiny paper to fill the space, and printed a header and footer.
Can you see me?
Now, everybody sing...
