Card Making


Today I have been stock checking as I suddenly realised there is only 40 days until I am Miss October. Or rather 40 days until I am showcasing my cards and prints at No3 Heworth.

October Showcase


Scan to take you direct to my MadeMe store

So I’ve been busy making cards to add to my showcase as you can never have to many cards! If you can’t get to York & want to purchase some I have a link for 7 of the cards at the bottom. These will be selling at £3.50 (at the showcase or £4.00 free p&p online)


I created these cards to sell at the showcase
Top row Original Cyanotypes made with ferns & flowers from my garden
ML – handmade paper printed with leaves
MR & BL – handmade paper with yellow daisies from my garden
BR – Pale blue handmade paper with Honesty seed pods & seeds
and Astrantia & seeds (could be planted)

I also created a video of myself (sad I know lol) making the cards. Each card is unique and they take many days to create starting from scratch.

The handmade paper has to be made and dried, the cyanotypes have to be painted with chemicals, left to dry then flowers placed on top and the good old British sunshine has to do it’s magic. The flowers/leaves have to pressed using my microfleur (another video is needed for each of these processes…) and last but not least the flowers have to grow in order for me to create any of these cards.
