Victorian Style Cards
Now for something completely different! This series of greetings cards are all worked on 14-count stitching paper. Each kit contains the stitching paper, needle, threads, backing paper, envelope, chart and full instructions. The cut-out and stand up features give a three-dimensional look to the designs, but don't require any construction. All the effects are achieved by cutting and folding as explained in the instructions, and the results are very special cards to send to very special people.
We are used to cards that fold in half, but the Victorians began the fashion with cards intended to be propped up on the mantlepiece or placed tastefully on display among the ornaments in a Victorian home. These first cards were more like postcards - but they became increasingly elaborate and Meg has reflected that high Victorian feel with this gorgeous green-and-gold themed card in the form of a fan.
Victorian Fan Christmas CardChristmas cards were first sent and received during the Victorian era and this card is based on a design from that time. It stands 15cms high and is finished with ribbon and a small metal flower. It makes an unusual and special Christmas card but cannot be used as a real fan.
