Pine cone postcard
Two of my brothers have birthdays this week so the card had to be somewhat masculine. I had the pine tree screen printed fabric from a screen printing session last year and I had a pile of brown scraps. After a couple of prototypes, here's the finished card. I was a little worried about how it looked but Chris guessed "pine cone" right away so I'm calling this a win.

I really like the sun print in the background. With a little sparkle, this would make a nice neutral holiday card. (We have Jewish friends and relatives, so at least some of our cards are seasonal instead of religious.)

I love this. The sunprint is beautiful. They would make wonderful Christmas cards for special friends.

to me it doesn't look like anything but a pine cone, so you did good. i wonder if your family keeps all these cool post cards that you send. i have a whole book full of the cards that we exchanged at MQR years ago.

Good job! I love that screen printed background. I think the pine cone turned out perfect!

Fabulous!! Love your postcards!
Love the postcard Vicki! Your pine cone is great, and so is the screen printed pine branch background, which if I'm not mistaken is one of our PGFiber2Art Screens and can be found in our Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/listing/156041512/thermofax-pine-branch-screen?ref=shop_home_active_49. A few comments identified it as a sun print, but it is a thermofax screen. I especially like the tone on tone color choice for the background.

That is so cute! Do you put them through postal service as is with a stamp on the back?

I actually laughed at you, not being sure you had successfully created a pinecone with your brown fabrics - silly goose!!
