Anniversary cards with stitches
There's a mixture of stitch on this golden wedding anniversary - the background silk was attached to paper on the sewing machine with gold thread. The art deco image of the dancing couple was printed directly onto fabric before being stitched, by machine, onto the silk background and then the button was stitched on afterwards. The gold heart is made from wallpaper and has had gold seed beads sewn onto it. The remaining elements were all glued onto the silk background.
This card also has an art deco dancing couple, but it is much more stylised. I've added a slew of french knots to highlight the sweep of the dress, the gentleman just has a line of back stitch around his collar and down the shirt front. I've also added a collection of gold french knots at each corner of the image.
I only make these stitched cards to commission as they can take a bit of time to do, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
I'll be back on Friday.
