White Iris

Always hard to find when you need one, is a tasteful Sympathy card.  Hopefully this new card by Phoenix fits the bill.  I chose a limited palette and a style that resembles a wood-block print.  I thought it made a change to use iris rather than the more usual lilies.  Iris was a Greek goddess of the rainbow, which she used to travel down to earth with messages from the gods and to transport women's souls to the underworld. The three upright petals and three drooping sepals are symbols for faith, valour and wisdom.  They have been printed on matt textured board and cost £1.20 each from your local trader.  I will have all my cards and wrap for sale at Open Studios in July.


And this new card matches the wrapping paper featured in the post on 7th December 2010.

New Baby cards

These are two new die-cut cards from Phoenix out this month.

It's May already!

No posts in April as too busy working on Christmas designs and it seemed a bit unseasonal to post pics of Santas and holly especially when the weather was so fabulous.  Instead here are a few things for May, including the finished macaroon design, which wasn't selected, but I shall endeavour do something else on a similar theme but different format.
