    I've never done it, but this link looks pretty easy to follow and their cards are cute.

    I make my Christmas cards and other occasions with paper pieced fronts. Here are a few I have done in the past. I make the pictures so they fit inside the 2" cut out I make with a paper cutting stamper that I bought at Michaels and print the greetings on card stock before I cut out the hole.


    This is one I made for Thanksgiving dinner several years ago

    This is one of the Christmas cards, I printed the picture frame and then cut out the picture area with an exact knife.

    i've never done quilted postcards, so i don't know this: after so much work, do you really put them in the mail and send them anywhere? i think they would suffer from traveling. am i misunderstanding how it works?

    I have done a few and really enjoyed the process. When it was time to mail, I went to the post office and asked to have the postcard hand canceled. I paid the amount for a letter and off the fabric postcard went in the mail.
