Santa with Curly Beard Postcard

This Santa postcard has no die cuts, but I had to include it in this blog because he just turned out so cute!  The original fabric was covered with these Santa motifs, so I cut one out and fused it onto the background fabric.  Because his beard was blank, it was begging for some free-motion stitching!  I used a gold metallic thread and stitched tight curls on his beard and hat.  The “Merry and Bright” section was stamped first onto fabric with Versa-Craft ink, cut out and fused to the background, then zig-zagged down.
