I recently participated in a Handmade Card Exchange. You have to send a handmade card and a postcard/photo of your area. Having never made a card before, I thought I better keep mine as simple as possible.
For the background, I found this perfect mountains/night time scrap booking paper. This was attached to the card using sticky dots. Amazing stuff! Only just discovered it and can see I will be using it more often in the future :).
For the star ornament, I used the Twinkle Twinkle pattern found on Le Blog de Frivole and attached it using a split pin (fastener) so it can be easily taken out to use. The thread used to tat this star is micro C-Lon nylon cord in baby blue (sky blue) colour. This thread does take some getting used to especially when tatting chains but I love how I do not have to block or stiffen the star once I'm done tatting. Will definitely be tatting some snowflakes in this thread for our Christmas tree :). Special thanks to Teri Dusenbury for suggesting the C-Lon thread :).
My girls fell in love with the card so it looks like I will be making two more for them :).
That's it for now. Thanks for visiting my blog :).
