|A lovely ebook prize all shiny in it's shrink wrap ready to send to one of you! :)
|The theme of the postcard swap is Snowflakes. I used scraps of my Swedish Linen (which I would never throw away!) to make the snowflakes. I used Aurifil thread and decorative stitches on my sewing machine and then appliqued them onto my background which has a stiff fusible material on the back to give the postcard enough strength to withstand the mail system.

|Here is the back. I bought a little kit from My Sweet Prairie on Etsy for the fusible and the stamped backing fabric.
