This weekend has been all about card making (and re-doing the Christmas cake!) A few months ago I decided that I wanted to make some applique christmas cards for my friends and family and, after seeing a few ideas in magazines, decided on baubles with a jewel colour theme which is the colour scheme for my wrapping this year.

I then cut a piece of christmas fabric (mine is a turquoisey teal snowflake print from Abakhan) and then a pieice of felt slightly bigger. I attached this to the card base using the sewing machine which was so much fun. I have never sewn onto card before but it is great! I didn't worry too much about it being really neat and central. Finally, I carefully stiched round the ribbon to attach it to the card.
Although it took quite a bit of time, I think it is well worth the time and I sure my friends and family will love receiving these this year!
