Picking up the postcard passion . . .
I tried making paper and card ones. These were done by sticking torn strips of magazine pages onto a background, painting it, cutting it up and re-sticking, repainting, can't remember how many times now, (3, I think, till it looked interesting enough anyway), then cutting up p/c size, machine stitching variously, mounting on card, zigzagging round edges. I used rayon threads and they kept breaking when doing the edges - frustrating! But they do add a bit of glimmer. There were 8 cards from an A3 sheet. I've given 3 away.
