Christmas card order

Hi everyone, this week has been busy with Christmas cards, I have had an order for six and I have also been finishing off my cushion which I will put on my next post.
I have used one of my previous hand painted cards and I am working on the last one but here are the four that I have made so far.

Bridal card

Hello, this week has passed so quickly again, I have had time to make two cards as well as make a start on my next cushion. The first card that I have made is a Bridal card, I had this idea while walking home from the shops and just had to give it a try. The bride itself has worked but I am not to sure about the background, I think it is a design that needs a little more thinking about.

The bottom of the dress is made from feathers with a net veil.

The hand painted Christmas card is one of my favourite cards from my painted selection. If you click on the picture you will get a better close up view of the beads and glitter.

This is the beginning of my tatted cushion, it is going to be a different pattern than before, it is only ordered for Christmas but I want to get it done, just in case anything else crops up!

Tatted cushion and cards

Hi, my tatted cushion is now ready, I was asked to make it for an 80th Birthday present along with a card. The brief was something that included pink!

The next card was an order made for a 10th Wedding Anniversary, they wanted something pink and soft so I have placed white feathers around the heart which has pink roses and pearl beads.


This card has also been sold, it is a quilled flower with leaves and pearl beads with a paper pricked frame which is slightly raised from the card.

This last one is a hand painted card, I think that I will use this one myself.
