If you have been reading my blog, you know that I love dala horses. My mom needed a gift for her dear Swedish friend so I decided to make her a bunch of cards.
When you mass produce cards like this, the most important thing is to do it in steps. First I covered small white cards with patterned paper.
Next, I stamped the images and mounted them on red cardstock. Our wonderful friend Claire decided to color the horses for me...
Next I added a contrasting strip of paper, attached the image with mounting tape and added a little flower.
I pakaged the cards in a clear box that I ordered from papertrey ink...http://www.papertreyink.com/, tied a ribbon around it and added a dala horse ornament. I made a little tag to go with the whole package... pretty darn cute!
Remember these mittens... I knit them on vacation this summer. I think 10 people have offered to buy them.
In November I did a dala horse tutorial here...http://jennicanknit.blogspot.com/2011/11/dala-horse-ornament.html
