Artist Trading Card Christmas Tree Decorations

These are fun and relatively easy to make.

1.  Print digital ATC's onto inkjet fabric.
2.  Ironed the fabric onto Wonder Under
3.  Background and edge outline stitched with  red, teal and metalic gold threads using a sewing machine.
4.  Add  antique lace,  tuile, gold fiber.
5.  Heat emboss a bit of gold on the edges,
6.  Punch a hole and add a grommet.
7.  Thread a sari ribbon remnant through the grommet.
  
Time spent -  Digitally creating the cards took approximately 3 hours, the rest - 2 hours.
