Some new cards

Romantic card 4

Here is one of the cards I made for a recent exchange. I searched for photos of old manuscripts and old buildings and printed them on to fabric. I added victorian clip art, also printed on fabric and appliqued the bits and pieces on Fast2Fuse, added muslin backing and satin stitched around the edge. The idea was to create visions of love letters in a historical setting, maybe Victorian or going back to the days of Jane Austen - cant't wait to see the new film, by the way. There's a secret romantic lurking inside, trying to emerge, these days...
