Wacky Trees Christmas Cards
I am on a roll this week!
These are the first cards that I started for this week. The started as a a bag of scraps from the Rainbow Quilt that I'm making. I gave myself a challenge to use them this year. There were lots of triangles in the scrap bag and that's what led me to trees. The dots are dimensional fabric paint and I think it's the addition of dots that really make these cards extra cute. The lesson I learned on these is to add the paint dots AFTER all the cards are completely done. I did them before I fused on the backs and had to be extra careful not to ruin the paint with the heat from the iron.
I did not fuse the triangles, I just positioned them where I wanted them and stitched carefully to get them held in place. You can see this post for the stitching path that I used to do these in a continuous stitching path.
I made 30 of these cards.

The dots do add the festive look of Christmas trees to these. I always manage to do something out of order the first time I do it - Like those paint dots!
