I'm delighted. They are gorgeous and I always get such a thrill when something that I have planted comes to life.
To honour this happy time I thought I'd show you some of the iris cards that I have made.
I do however need to apologise upfront for the quality of the photographs, these where taken a long time ago!!!
For some reason I do not have any stitching iris patterns, will have to remedy that sometime soon.
These two cards are made with silk ribbon.
I received a lovely card making book from my S-I-L a couple of years ago and included was a section on silk ribbon flowers by Ann Cox. I tried them and enjoyed the process and results so much that I bought her book. Over the course of the next couple of months I will show you some of the other flowers that I have made but these where my first attempts.
