Imbolc card and envelop set - Brigid's Cross

Made for a recent swap. For a twist on the traditional Brigid’s cross for Imbolc, I carved the symbol and stamped it onto mixed media paper, then added it with a strip of textured black paper to cards. Each one is a bit different in placement.


I used some plain brown paper card and envelops that are sold at craft shops, the gold is paint sponged onto the edges for a little touch of warmth and light.

Even though it is a very simple design, I still managed to over cut the lines and had to carve it twice to get it right!

Oh, the gold paint is the “wow factor” for sure! Great carving!

Terrific graphic design! Looks so good with the black and white shapes jumping out from the kraft-paper background. And yes, the gold touches really elevate it, too.

I messed up the lines on my first try and had to start over so I am Really happy this second go turned out. I do like that gold paint a bunch. It makes for a nicely decorated edge, just a bit of glimmer to brighten things up. Like the sun peeking over the horizon :slightly_smiling_face:
