Keep the mystery alive with our unique red lace Valentine card, the result of a collaboration with photographer Ash Brown. Leicester-based Ash took photos of lights using a heart-shaped lens tool to make this intense bokeh hearts image in multiple shades of red. It was my idea to add a detachable lace heart ornament, to make the perfect Valentine’s Day keepsake.
Bokeh: the aesthetic quality of the blur in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens [Wikipedia].
The red lace heart ornament is about 40mm in size and 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. The lace is tied to the card with a silk ribbon, so just untie it to hang it up somewhere as a memento of your undying love.
This lace Valentine card is A6 size and has the words “Be My Valentine” on the front. The photo image is a high quality print onto high quality card. It comes with a plain white envelope and is blank inside so that you can pen your own message of intense romantic love! (Probably best to keep it clean – and no trolling). It will be delivered to you in a plain envelope to keep your secret safe. Postage is FREE within the UK.
