Christmas Cards

Yesterday my friend Heather showed me a beautiful hand stitched Christmas tree she had stitched to make into a pin cushion.  The idea came from Stitch Magazine.  I decided to use the same idea to create a few special Christmas cards.  They're quick to make and fit right in to my new personal goal of getting back to working on my art every day.  Instead of wasting time in front of the TV, I can accomplish something useful while watching/listening to TV.

The centre card was made using painted Aida cloth.  This is a great tip because you can use any acrylic paint and create Aida cloth in virtually any colour to suit your needs.

  1. Hi Linda, thought I would drop in and look at your site. Love the cards, and you gave me an idea for my Bead Journal project with the card you made with the cross stitch cloth. Thanks! Maybe my muse brought me to your site! Hey, who knows! Anyway, welcome to the Bead Journal Project, have fun with it. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year..Char
