Every year I make about 30 machine-stitched Christmas cards. This year, I borrowed a stencil of tree silhouettes and used it with oil paintstick on grey hand-dyed cotton. Added crystals and stitched with metallic thread.
I then subject these little guys to the mercies of Canada Post, without benefit of an envelope. As they make their way around the world, I hope they bring a little delight to those who handle them, and those who receive them.
Wishing you a magical Christmas!
