Maine scrap postcards #3
Here's the third set of postcards. For these I had this screen printed leaf to use as my focal piece. These were incredibly fast to make but it took a few tries to get the final design.
This was my first try. It's OK but I didn't like it enough to do a flip and sew technique for 13 more cards. I reminded myself to keep them really simple and that means using the cut curves of the fabric.
Then I tried this with a simple 3 piece background. I though that with the curves that I could make a landscape out of the background: sky, hill, ground so that's what I did for the other 12. I will still use these 2 "rejects". For my purposes they are just fine!
14 of these! I think I have a focal piece and enough scraps for one more set of these. I'm going to be golden for Airbnb cards for the year!

I would imagine you have return visitors - all curious to know what your latest postcard treat might be. Don't think they will be disappointed with these!
