Easy X-mas cards

Easy X-mas cards


Tonight little H. and I made a bunch of X-mas cards for the children at the local children's hospital - a great project initiated by a class parent.
We came up with several homemade cards. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take pictures of them before they went in an envelope, except for this one, which I made earlier in the day. Very easy to make if you want to give this a try. All you need is a piece of vellum, some colorful sequins, card stock, some contrasting thread and a sewing machine...

Some of our other cards included fingerprinted moose and snowmen to which details were added using a felt tip marker (look here for inspiration), and a very cool Keith Haring inspired Christmas tree with presents and stars by little H.

Love this card! Wish you'd had time to take pictures of the others - they sound great too! And such a good idea to make some for a local hospital.

een mooie geste, zal zeker gesmaakt worden door de zieken, die mss nooit iets krijgen, of van iedereen verlaten zijn!
