This Lace Fox card has a detachable white lace ornament with a silk ribbon loop. It’s left blank for your own message. It makes a beautiful statement and is a romantic alternative to the usual Valentine or Anniversary cards.
The ornament is made from a new ‘Veronica’ motif. The lace fox measures approx. 6 x 6.5cm and is made right here in Nottingham, England from 100% white rayon thread . The hanging ribbon is 100% silk. I designed the ‘Veronica’ lace motif myself, inspired by wedding commission.
The single fold card measures 15cm x 10.5cm when closed, and is available in cobalt blue (pictured) or cream (described as ‘soft white’). Both card and envelope are made from recycled paper. The biodegradable cellophane wrapper protects the card in transit. Postage is FREE within the UK!
Mounted lace fox head design, measuring approximately 150mm, ideal for framing at home.
The fox head lace design is made up of the Jasper motif, designed in response to lace viewed at Nottingham Trent University Lace Archive. The lace has been scaled down, to make tiny motifs, combined and shaped to fit this fox head shape
The lace is stitched to the backing paper, which is then mounted and backed using cream card. The mount is discreetly signed on the front and a description and the name of the motif used is hand written on the reverse. The mounted lace is then wrapped in cellophane to protect.
I was born and raised in Leicestershire, whose emblem is the fox, due to the tradition of foxhunting there and also the fox-head shape of the county. The lace fox head design was developed in 2013 as a gift for my sister, who is a big Leicester City FC fan, but is added for sale due to recent popular demand. It would make a fantastic gift for a fan of football or woodland creatures!
The whole mount measures 250mm square and will fit into an Ikea square frame. The second picture in the gallery shows the fox head in an Ikea frame. These items are limited in number as I am trying new techniques. Postage is £3 in the UK and £5 outside the UK.
Lace is 100% white rayon. If you would like a lace fox head made in an custom colour, please get in touch!
