Spring in December postcards
I have a few December birthdays and one is 2 days before Christmas. My only goal with the cards for these birthday girls is to make these cards look decidedly non-holiday. I was a little behind in getting these done so Friday evening I had to get busy and get them knocked out. One of them is already a week late!
These cards started with some sunprints that I made a few years ago. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled these prints out to try to figure out something to do with them. I've been trying to use them as a the whole card image and nothing ever inspired me. Friday evening I pulled them out again and thought that cropping the image might just do the trick.....and it did.
Some shiny, bright pink stitching was all that was needed to finish them off. I made 6 and mailed two of them Saturday. In the end I think they are pretty cute!
I did lots of other things this weekend but I don't have photos yet. The tie dye tshirts are all done and I started 2 new veterans quilt tops that I'm going to probably finish this week. I don't have any other sewing projects queued up so I'll put these two simple tops together. Photos of all those things will come in the next few days.

Very cool b'day cards!

That's a lesson for all of us to just highlight a portion of a neat fabric print instead of using it whole.

Those cards are lovely. Using the sunprints that way really works nicely.

These cards turned out great! As a December birthday girl, I can tell you that non-holiday is appreciated. The pink and green really sparkle, so if they live where winter has arrived big time, they'll love the card even more. I'm beginning to work on my creativity production plan for 2023, and postcards are definitely going to be included. Happy Holidays

Those colours are such a joy to see on a dull, about to dump snow on us royally, sort of day!
