Yuletide Trees

Soon be Christmas. This year my theme for my cards is Trees. Simple and fun to make using vintage & modern, fabrics and trims. Designer papers from last years stash are used as the base for each card.

I used my trusty New Home 826 My Style that I have had for 25+ years. Sparkly thread from a number of manufacturers, Gutterman Sulky was the easiest to use, less breaks than the others. The shiny or sparkly ribbon is the Christmas one with thin wire on the edge. I hope you get some good ideas from these.

It has been really busy here, lots of socialising, some great craft and vintage fairs and lots of making too.

Have a Very Happy Christmas and many blessings for a good New Year.
