I think I mentioned I'd started on some handmade 'aperture' cards at the weekend. As with everything that looks absolutely simple to make, there was a lot more effort in them than might initially appear! Suffice to say, there was a lot of cutting, glueing, double-sided tape(ing!) involved to make them look effortlessly simple!
I had to devise a way of sealing the tweed fabric inside a second layer of card so they look nice and tidy from the inner of the card - sheesh! My simple, relaxing project wasn't quite so straightforward after all - never mind, I was quite pleased with the results.
Mostly, I just like how they show off the fabric to its best advantage and of course, being Harris Tweed, they are very 'touchy/feely'!
I like a bit of 'kitsch' so was quite pleased with the 'Scottie' dogs.
. . . some dragon flies (which I was delighted to get blanks for, as they are a native species)
. . . and some simple hearts (not much I can say about them!!).
Sorry some of the pics are a bit dark, you can't really see the richness of the fabric, particularly the plaid/checks - the colours are really beautiful.
Off to continue with my stock-building mission!
Bye for Now
