I've been doing a bit of simple card making, using this stunningly beautiful embroidered Chinese silk.
I found it left outside in the rain at a flea market, so unfortunately the colours had started to run on some of the embroidered sections. Thankfully much was salvageable and was the perfect size to slip behind these cards with open mounts.
|I had enough of the cards to make just 5 for now, but will make some more soon.|
The small rectangle of card that popped out of the mount was just large enough to fold in half to make gift tags! I used up some tiny pieces of hand embroidery I had left over from the next project I wanted to show...

It is lined inside with the softest ditsy printed flannelette cotton (same as handles) and is finished with a 30's button and loop fastening.
Wishing you a happy weekend,
