I saw this tutorial for a fabric envelope and card from ohdeedoh a while back and remembered it when I wanted to make a special Christmas card for my Mother-in-law Roma.
I embroidered Grandma Roma at the front and added a printed family photo stamp at the corner and embroidered faux post stamp print.
Then for the “card” I embroidered Merry X-mas 2010.
I quite like the finished product and it’s a lot more personal I think.
Ooh, 2 more sleeps!
