Christmas Decoration Card

 

We love the idea of sending and receiving greetings cards over the festive season, but we hate the idea of them all just being thrown away in the New Year. Instead, why not make a card that the recipient will keep and treasure for years? That’s the idea with this project. Learn how to sew a foundation pieced tree decoration mounted onto a greeting card, perfect to send to your friends and loved ones.
