Paper craft

I couldn't sleep on Sunday so got up really early and made the envelope, which involved lots of measuring, marking, cutting and gluing. The amount of time and effort I put in to making it really was over the top for something so simple that will ultimately end up in the bin, but strangely it took my mind off other things - better than knitting those toe up socks anyway.

Here is the card I made over the last week or so






















and the envelope

I love this card, exactly my sort of thing! Did you use a rubber stamp? Would love some info on where to get it from as have been searching for Celtic designs for ages. Thanks!

Thanks :)

I painted it by hand. The design is a mixture of a few knotwork panels (George Bain's Celtic Art, Methods of Construction has loads of examples) that I copied!
