Christmas Stag Postcards
The multicolored tree cards are to the point where they are ready for the backing so it's time to move on to the next design.
I like to have at least one design each year that involved screen printing and I had a stag screen image from Carol Sloan that I've been wanting to use. I don't see this screen in her shop but I'm sure she could make it again if you wanted one.
I printed 3 fat quarters of these, backed them with fusible and cut each one out. It only took 2 football games to cut out 30 of these.
Then I pulled out my Pine Bough screen from PGFiber2Art and printed about a half yard of fabric. Then I fused this to my Stiffy interfacing and cut out 30 postcards.
A little fusing and a little stitching and here's where I stand on these. Next I have to fuse the backs, edge them and then add some paint dots. I'll do that after I get the 3rd design fused and stitched.

How interesting that you posted this the same day I have been looking at screens for printing.

It amazes me how many postcards you make each year. They are just wonderful!

Thanks for continuing to use screens produced by PGFiber2Art. The pine bough is definitely one of our favorites.
