Christmas cards


Christmas cards are my gift to my family and friends. I have made them for more than 40 years. The techniques range from drawing, cutting, photographs, acrylics, watercolor to beading designs and many other techniques. The above piece is an acrylic mandala that now graces our wall each Christmas season. To get the designs on our cards, I have placed the photo or computer print out on the card or I have printed directly onto the card. 

The gold tree is all hand sewn with buttons, beads, and doodads. The size is 9" x 12". OK, it did take a while to create this, but that's the way I work.

Guess I'm saying-"Go for it". Express yourself and know that the cards are given with love. 
Now I need to start addressing this years cards!
