Description

Lovingly handmade from an old photograph, this card is totally unique. There is not another the same in the whole wide world.

The image is hand sewn onto high quality 280g recycled card, which feels pleasingly weighty in the hand. These things are important.

Sadly, the photo is not dated, but it came with a batch from 1967. It looks like this kind of era to me. This being the case, the image would be 50 years old.

It measures 10.5 x 14.5cms (when folded) and comes with a vintage grey Waverley envelope. There is a small amount of pink tissue inside.

It is blank, for your own message.

All of my work is individually numbered. This piece is 810.

Standard First Class postage is included in the price, within the UK. If you would like to pay extra for 'signed for' delivery, please send me a message.

In keeping with my environmentally friendly ethos, your package will arrive on your doormat in an envelope sewn from old magazines.

Inspiration

I bought some old photographs in an antique shop in Margate last year, and have been wanting to put them to good use ever since.

This photograph is my favourite from the batch. I like the chef, in the background, trying to get in on the act.

The envelope is made by Waverley in Scotland. I bought it in a charity shop, quite recently. I did a little online research to try and find when it was made. I had no success, but looking at the presentation box, it came in, I would guess late 70s or early 80s.

You can see the envelope packaging, plus other information, on my blog (alisonsye.com), where I have more space to write more stuff.

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Thanks for coming,
Alison
