Merry And Bright Christmas Cards

These cards measure 6” x 6” and are made using a hand-cut plain red card.

Faux StitchingAs I said the other day this Christmas I am determined to make a HUMUNGUS dent in my Christmas embellishment collection and in making these cards I managed to use up all the HobbyCraft foil stickers I had left over from last year, plus the last of the smaller snowflakes from a disassembled garland I found in a charity shop (also last year).
