    I love these cards. Every year I say I'm going to do this too because it's so much fun - so far my score is zero! You get 100!

    What is the process you use-are those the actual cards?

    Those are the cards. The base is a blank pre-made card, them I just piece fabric to make the design I want, glue it down to baste is while I actually sew it on through the card. The inside is blank to write whatever you want. I've also put batting behind a couple of them I've made to give the fabric some definition. You could make several similar ones, leaving the inside blank and give as a gift of note cards.
    So many possibilities ....

    ooh I like that idea! Can you show a pic of the sewing inside? Just so I can make sure I have it in my head right?

    Here is a sample of what the stitches look like inside the cards. Just following the edges of the fabric on the front.

    Have been wanting to do this for yrs. and haven't gotten to it yet. Also, post cards are on the list. Oh, I just remembered one I did 4 or 5 yrs. ago and sent to a friend in South America. They are fun to do and you did great! Thanks for sharing and merry Christmas too! :thumbup:
