Paper Piecing...

I had several special requests for Christmas cards last year so I made custom cards. The cactus was for somebody that lives in Arizona. I didn't have as many "lights" as I thought I had (see the car card), so I ended up making a b'zillion lights out of sculpey and glueing them on. Ugh! I made 35 of these for one order, so you can imagine the pizza pan FULL of sculpey lights baking in the oven!

The car card was for a 16 year old boy that also loves the guitar.

The dove card was a favorite of mine. I made about 25 for a special order, but I love the way it turned out.

The nativity was also a favorite...but too much work! There were quite a few punches used to assist, but quite a bit of free cutting as well. Baby Jesus is made from the cherub punch.

The "stocking" was just a really fun one I cased...I think from a magazine. Very fun design and fun to make.
