Past Christmas Cards

It's a long time since I last posted.  I'm in the middle of a Christmas Card for my daughter at the moment.  I've had to do some frogging, but it's now coming along nicely.  So, I thought I would share with you some of the Christmas Cards that I have stitched in the past.

My First Christmas Card.

These are just some of the cards that I have stitched for my daughter over the years.  The last one is a bit crumpled.  I used glue to stick it in the card, which I will never do again.  I now use double sided tape, which is much better.  I also pad out my cards to give a raised effect.  I find you don't need too much as it can distort your card when folding it together.

Must get back to doing some more stitching.  Christmas is just around the corner!!

Happy Stitching Everyone

They're all beautiful cards, I love the Angel.
Double sided sticky tape is brilliant, it makes such a difference to a finish.
