Shannon started a thread on here about sending out Christmas cards and it got me to thinking. Does anyone on here make home made Christmas cards and embellish them with sewing or quilting? If so I'd love to see some of your work so I can get some ideas. Please share any pics you may have of them.

Sewing or quilted Christmas cards are looking nice and awesome and is the best option for you to give as a best gift to your friends and relatives for any special occasion. I very much like quilted gift cards which are unique in pattern.

Are these hard to do? I make cards, but have never sewn them; kinda' scared about not knowing what sort of thread/needle to use. Any ideas?

Last year my sister Carol sent out quilted Christmas postcards that she made, much like a mug rug but with a blank back like a postcard. Up until this weekend it was right here by my computer as I was using it as a mug rug but seems grandkids moved it an I can't find it. Sending them through the mail usually requires extra postage go check with your PO.
