Postcard Embellishment

This weekend I decorated the X-mas Tree and when searching through all accumulated X-mas decorations  from preceding years I found this cute little card. 

I immediately loved this card with the cats, the glitters and the nice colours that someone sent me last year and wanted to keep it. My luck that just after I got it, I stumbled upon the blog of Dutch Sisters, who had this great idea  (with tutorial) to do with beautiful postcards: crochet a little edge around the card and hang it on your wall like a little painting. 

Even better: it has exactly the colors I used for the living room decorations I made in the last weeks!



  1. how lovely! I pinned this idea a while ago but haven't chosen any cards to do it to. It looks so nice!

  2. Your crochet card looks beautiful, i love the red edge!

    Blessings :-)

  5. That is a gorgeous postcard, and this is a really great idea! I'm definitely pinning this!
