Red & White - Scandanivan Christmas style

Hi to everybody!

I was out and about doing a bit of Christmas shopping yesterday and I couldnt fail to notice that red and white and scandanivan christmas decorations were all over the place.  Well, its really putting the glitter and bling in its place (?) so I got working and made some red/white Christmas cards.

  I cut out the felt tree from Kunin Glitter felt with a Spellbinders dye.  Now, although its called Glitter Felt its more of a subdued shimmer felt - not in your face at all.  Available from Hickeys/HomeFocus... and I hand embroidered the trees free-style with crochet cotton -  no transfers, no outlines etc just went for it.   These are my style of fuss, handmade from scratch, no two the same...and a teeny, tiny bit of crochet (the hanging loop) AND most important of all recycleable -  the tree is backed with heavy cardboard and can be removed from the card and used as a Christmas decoration for future Christmasses!
Entering the last card in CreatewithKates Red and White challenge.

Happy Christmas Crafting!
