Birthday Cards

Two different views of the same card are today's Christmas card. This style seem to be very big when it comes to making cards. Two layers of the background were cut and then applied on the different sections. Designing this on the Gypsy after you cut the sections is very helpful to get the sizing of the snowmen and other elements. Love the snowmen from this cartridge with added Stickles to the snowmen and snowflakes. The best part of this card is when it is fully opened and you can see all the different cuts that you've made.

Looks like I will have a couple new kits to sew during the winter months, thanks to the Amish Quilt Shop Hop. The kits were part of the prize I won for visiting all 12 shops and then my name was drawn when the shop owners got together after it was over.
First one is a kit for a bag with pattern and all the materials needed including the netting, zipper straps and fabric.
The second kit is for a wool table runner with pattern and the wool to make the snowmen and trees and background.

This is all that I won including the kits, patterns, and rulers. It was a fun time doing the hop which is held the first weekend in November.
