Christmas card - Fabric poinsettia and pinecones

This was the theme for my Christmas cards a few years ago. The poinsettia's are actually fabric which I'd picked up in the after Christmas sales the previous year. I used an iron on paper (can't remember what this is called but bought by the metre at Spotlight) as the backing which allowed me to cut out the image, and fine detail, using fabric scissors. Very easy yet different and effective. I get bored easily with Christmas cards as it's often the same design repeated over and over. I liked this idea as each card was slightly different on the fabric and only doubled up each metre.
