Christmas Card Holder

I have been commissioned to make 4 of these Christmas Card Holders - these have ribbon attached at the bottom where cards can be added with miniature pegs. A unique addition to Christmas- and useful too.
Embroidery, curved piecing of background scenery and free motion embroidery enhancing each area.

What do you get when you combine, borders, embroidery, applique and an autumn them - a cape (the size of a pool table). The tree is appliqued, and there are many designs of fairies - young and old. Trees, toadstools, mushrooms, elves and 3D leaves. Some of these I have digitised others came mainly from Embroidery library and Sue Box Designs. This was 3 months in the making -and helped earn me Student of the Year 2010 at the Australian Embroidery College, where I have attained my Certificate III in Embroidery.
