Wilma is fabulous. She organized the 2017 Crazy Quilting International (CQI) Valentine Postcard Swap.
I decided to make a couple of fabric postcards at the same time. So, I pieced both on the same piece of muslin.
Embellishing this one was a lot of fun!
My husband said he could not tell the butterfly's flight path said, "Love". He thought it looked like "Save". *sigh* It was a little late to do anything about it...
I was still happy with how it turned out.
After mailing it, I noticed I also forgot to add a thread from the spider to the web. Oops! (We'll pretend that was intentional so the spider would be crawling on the card, not dangling from its web, okay?!)
I cut a piece of pink card stock to measure 8.5 x 11-inches to fit in our printer. Using Microsoft Word, I created the design for the back and was able to fit two of these on the pink card stock.
For fun, the blog name was added to the bottom of the postcard.
The note on the back (not pictured) was written with a black glitter gel pen, so the ink sparkles.
(It really is the little things that make me smile!)
This was mailed out on February 1st for Day 1 of InCoWriMo (International Correspondence Writing Month.)
After the recipient receives the 2nd postcard I created,
it will be shared here. (If you cannot wait until then, it is on Instagram - the recipient does not check in there...)
Thank you for stopping by!
