Had my first ever Xmas Craft Show last week and I made a series of xmas cards to sell. These are the only ones I had left afterwards, I forget to take a pic before and they sold very well indeed! I also had red, dark green, pale blue and gold ones on sale.



A close up of the design



The tree was based on this free pattern, which can be found here: http://aliolka.blogspot.com/2009/10/blog-post_8023.html
I just used the top of the design and part of the base for my cards.


I also had a go at making some cross stitch badges, I got given a badge maker a few years ago which has sat unused so I figured I should put it to some use! Unfortunately these didn't sell very well at all, I think I sold one. So guess what everyone's getting for Xmas this year!

Aww, they are cute little badges, it's a shame they haven't sold. Perhaps you could use them for cards too, maybe a detachable centrepiece?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks for the comments Smiley I like the idea about having them as part of the cards, maybe an idea for next Christmas!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
