This year I'm actually going to send out x-mas cards. Last year, I didn't really feel like it, so I didn't. I've been giving myself permission to skip out on things that I used to stress out about. And yes, this used to stress me out. Sad, I know.
This year, I'll be sending out a few of these and most likely giving them to teachers and friends who don't need, or want, our family picture card. They're super-easy and make great use of scraps. Follow my tutorials for this design.
Heather of Olive and Ollie - she does amazing applique.
This is the inside. It's kind of crooked, but it still looks lovely. Tip: Glue your shapes to the card first. I did the trunk first and then stitched it in place. Then glue the tree over the trunk and then stitch.
I'm really not this organized, but I'm filling 2 orders of quilted notecards today and just threw these in at the same time.
I can hear the carols and taste the egg nog...
