New Stylings: Contemporary Christmas Tree Postcards

These trees can be made in any color and pattern you desire. Let me know your requirements at

These cards have been so much fun to design. I love experimenting with different fabrics together; pushing the envelope, so to speak. Instead of using a fabric binding, I used my overcast foot with gold thread over gold braid. It really gives it a nice clean, sparkly finish.

These cards are larger at 5 1/2" X 8 1/2"than the regular 4" X 6" postcards. How did I come up with that size. It is half a sheet of cardstock. so when I print the back, I get exactly 2 postcards with no waste. This is a great size for a picture frame. Also, you can write more on the back. These took more time because I buttonhole stitched around each piece of the tree. You can see the layers of the tree really pop!

Come and see the detail of these great cards in my shop:
