Just taking the opportunity while DH takes over the nursing of a somewhat needy post-op Bonnie for a wee while to do this post. I really enjoyed making this card because this is my first attempt at using fabric and stitching.
The fabric has everything you need for a Christmas card, a red, gold, white and black colour scheme and snowmen, holly, lanterns and robins - perfect! I stitched it to red card cut out with the one of the new baby nesties from B-C-E and then adhered it to black backing paper. I chose the Nellie Sugar stamp, Snow Loved, thinking it an ideal match with the fabric and stuck to the colour scheme.
