i have probably used the heart-in-hand image more in card making than for any other project. this card was made using purple and blue paste paper, with arches textwove inside.
the hand shape was cut from the paper and then layered...and a sewn heart with a little message is revealed inside.
many years ago when i was president of our calligraphers guild, i made this small card for each of our board members in appreciation of their support, hard work, and wonderful devotion to our group.
cut in the shape of a hand, this one opens accordion style...
to reveal hand-marbled hearts surrounded by a special hand-lettered message! i have so many more examples of cards (but, i promise, i won't bore you with them all!). it's so much fun to take an image and see how many different ways you can use it!
