I meant to post this during the week. My bad. I have to start setting up posts in advance again. I’ll play around with that.But yes! Christmas cards. I bought these cards during the post-2012 Christmas clearance season at Jo-Ann’s. I brought them out for Christmas 2013 and felt that I needed to get my crafty mitts involved.
(Side note, I do realize that I am a ridiculous Jo-Ann’s customer. I stop there all the time. There are two of equal distance from my house - one on my way home from work and one out in the neighborhood of my weekend errands. Unfortunately, this will change because the smaller Jo-Ann’s on my way home from work is closing down and moving to another town, which would add at least another half hour to my commute home. It makes me very sad. I mean, I’ve been going there since I was three and there’s a lot of memory in that little hole in the wall. But anyway….)

So I measured some stuff, cut, folded, and clued as shown below so that the back side of the stitching wasn’t quite so visible:
