I have to say that this one is stunning and would look lovely as a decoration. I started this one with card that has a linen fabric effect to it and then stitched the squares etc to create a patchwork quilt look. There are four squares in each corner and in the center the poinsettia paper has been pieced together to form a star. On each corner I have blanket stitched the squares and then added cut out letters which form the word NOEL, these have been hand glittered. On top of the star are two scalloped squares. In the very center is a large red glittered Poinsettia. I have added two gold glittered leaves at either side. Pretty red ribbon adorns the top and bottom of the front. The inside has been paper pieced with scallop and blanket stitch and a sentiment on the left reads "Seasons Greetings". The other side has also been stitched and the sentiment, which has been heat embossed reads "Happy Holidays. The card comes with a beautiful handmade box envelope
