This unique lace ornament ‘Love’ card is the result of another collaboration with photographer Ash Brown. Leicester-based Ash is the talented tog behind most of my photo shoots. His obsession is light, capturing it and using it in creative ways. He took photos of Leicester’s festive lights, using a heart-shaped lens tool to make the bokeh pattern. It was my idea to add a detachable lace ornament to the cards, for the perfect keepsake of a wedding or anniversary. The heart design is picked out in light highlights or ‘bokeh’
The lace ornaments are about 40mm in size, made from silky rayon thread in my Nottinghamshire studio. The design is a traditional Nottingham Lace design, derived from an old factory drawing for a lace handkerchief corner. I took just the corner element and created a unique lace heart. They’re tied to the card with a silk ribbon, so detach to hang in a window or as part of a romantic display.
The card is A6 in size, comes with a plain white envelope and blank inside for your own romantic message. Postage is FREE within the UK!
