christmas cards

I make my own Christmas cards out of recycled commercial Christmas cards. I solicit donations of used cards from friends and family.

I love choosing the combinations of trees and backgrounds. Each card is unique, yet based on the same simple design. The tree image is cut and sewn to the background with a straight machine stitch, and the background is sewn to cardstock with a fancy machine stitch.

I usually print a verse inside that reads: The tree of life my soul has seen/Laden with fruit and always green.
