Bespoke greeting cards


Valentines Day Cards

I am working on a range of designs for Valentines Day cards. Will put some new designs on the blog soon.

Origami Christmas trees & origami stars…an understated antidote to all the Christmas bling.

The cards can be made from anything suitable to fold…maps, music, newspapers, books, etc. etc.


Handmade cards for MIY Workshop, Brighton

Naming this design, ‘Passion Flower’…it has a slight resemblance to them!

Origami dresses.

Handmade hearts showing the lovely 1960s fashion illustrations from the pattern envelope.

Handmade cards for MIY Workshop in Brighton.

These handmade cards were commissioned by Wendy Ward for her central Brighton sewing class & sewing machine hire venue. She gave me an old Simplicity sewing pattern, no. 7883, to make the cards with – very appropriate! Especially pleased with the sweet little origami dresses and how well the ‘Passion flowers’ turned out.

I made both of the above. Although pretty, they were very time consuming….so I won’t be going into production!
