Croft house cards

Some little cards I’ve been working on, this is the background which I’ve already felted and stitched on the machine.

I’ve needle felted a little Shetland croft house onto each one, attached that to a felt backing and then glued the whole thing to a card blank. I chose the kraft buff blanks and envelopes and some white blanks.

Thought I’d list them in Etsy and http://www.shetlandmarket.com/ which I’ve been selling in for a while. An eclectic assortment of talented (myself excluded) artisans some of whom I know very well.

The light is really starting to fade fast here and these last couple of weeks its been difficult finding a day that has enough light to take a decent image of the products I’ve made. Being more arty than teccy I’m not that good when it comes to making all the necessary brightness/contrast adjustments, so I tend to leave it although one of  the two pics above has been ‘doctored’.

I recently visited the shetland Islands and bought a note card that I love. Since I am framing this one-i was hoping to order more to send as note cards. On the back of the card it has printed n the UK by Art2Card. Could you give me any info about how to order these beautiful cards. Thank you. Ann

Hi Ann, thanks for contacting us and glad you liked the card, there is no on-line order available but we do have some stock at home. If you could e-mail my wife – iwonacharleson@hotmail.com – with your details and what you would like to order then we’d be delighted to be of service.
Regards
Neil
