A postcard with a touch of "country" style in natural colors

The postcard looks very cute and original, and it is applied to natural restrained tones. A special contrast of simplicity and restraint gives a sharp contrast to the materials - coarse raw burlap and refined iridescent organza and satin. The materials for making this interesting postcard can be found among the remnants and shreds that are left over after other handmade masterpieces. Thus, your postcard will not be very expensive. Of course, you can adjust the design of the card for your materials and desires. To make such a greeting card, you will need: - a piece of white or gray cardboard for the base of a postcard measuring 29.4x21 cm; - a piece of patterned cardboard with an abstract golden-olive pattern measuring 14.7x21 cm; - a piece metallized cardboard of bronze color 11x7 cm; - a piece of burlap from the most ordinary economic bag from underpotatoes or sugar, pre-washed; Sacking is sold in stores for creativity, but there it is unreasonably expensive, so you can do with what you have on hand; - Lurex metallic thread of golden color for knitting or embroidery; - about 1 m satin ribbon 1 cm wide soft cream color; - patches of iridescent organza of a rich olive-golden color; - cream colored beads and pearl-colored sequins; - about 27 cm of a patterned braid of a soft yellow color 2.5 cm wide;- double-sided stationery tape; - ruler and pencil for marking; - w eynaya thread in tone satin ribbon, fine needle, pins; - candle and matches; - scissors.

To begin, a piece of patterned cardboard must be prepared for the front of the postcard. To do this, along the long side, departing from the right edge of 3 cm, you need to glue the patterned braid. Gently glue the two strips of double-sided tape next to each other from one short edge to another. Remove the protective layer and place the tape on the adhesive tape so that the free ends are left on both sides of about 3 cm.We press it so that it is firmly glued.

Now glue up the protruding ends of the braid to the seamy side. We do this with two small pieces of scotch.

Note: the part must be cut along the oblique - the direction of the slices is shown in the photo. Thus, you will prevent shedding cuts. The cuts should be at an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the lobar and transverse threads of the web. We cut out a strip of about 9x4 cm in this way. It's okay if the rectangle is slightly skewed,and its sides are not perfectly even.

Now we take a pin with a thick edge and with its help we jag the edges of the rectangle approximately 8 mm around the perimeter. Due to the fact that the sacking is cut out by a scythe, the edges will not crumble, but acquire a fluffy fringe with the effect of some negligence. After you have ragged edges, try on the part. If it's too big, trim it to the size you want.

Then you need to glue a piece of burlap to the metallized cardboard. Using two strips of adhesive tape, we glue the burlap along the long side of the rectangle closer to one edge.

The finished part with sacking needs to be decorated with metallized gold lurex. Wind 5-6 turns across the part with the burlap closer to the right edge. Place the turns diagonally and crosswise. Tie a thread on the seamy side. For reliability, you can additionally secure the coils with tape or glue on the inside so that they do not move. You can also put glue or nail polish on the knot to fix it, although this is not necessary. On the front side, straighten the fringe so that Lurex goes over the burlap, but not over the fringe.

We set aside both cardboard parts and deal with elements of decor from the fabric. From the satin ribbon you need to roll five small roses. While folding the roses, if necessary, fasten the flower with pins. Thread a double thread into a thin needle. Sew all the layers of the rose so that the thread is not visible on the front side. Then output the thread on the front side in the middle of the flower and sew one sequin and one bead.Take the thread to the inside, fasten it with a knot, but do not cut it.

So you need to prepare five roses. Organza needs to carve out five circles with a diameter of about 5 cm. It's okay if the circles are curves and even do not look like circles at all.

We light a candle and begin to process cuts of the cut organza patches. If the cut is brought to the side of the flame, the cut will melt without being deformed. If the organza is brought on top of the flame, then melted, it will curve beautifully. The piece itself will significantly decrease in size. In this case, to obtain melted sepals in the form of a "cup", you need to carefully bring the organza with a cut on top of the flame. Be careful not to burn the whole piece of organza and your own fingers.

When all five sepals are ready, it is necessary for each of them sew rosettes. To do this, place the rosette in the scorched "nests", bring the thread on the wrong side and make a few reinforcement stitches, grabbing both the organza and the lower layers of satin ribbon. Do not cut the thread, but leave it on the wrong side.

The resulting roses need to be decorated with a small detail with burlap. Sew the roses to the small cardboard details, placing them as in the photo. Sew straight through all the layers - cardboard, burlap, organza and ribbon. For each flower, make at least 3-4 stitches so that they are firmly attached on all sides tocardboard. On the seamy side, fasten the thread with 1-2 knots and cut off the excess end of the thread. If in your knot you are not sure, drip on it with glue or varnish. Thus, sew four flowers to the small detail.

Sew the remaining flower not to a small detail with burlap, and to a patterned detail with a border. Try on a small detail to understand where you will place it, and then sew the flower to the cardboard as in the photo or as you wish. Secure the thread on the wrong side and cut off the excess.

Finished, decorated pieces need to be put together. Cover with double-sided tape the perimeter of the inside of the small piece of cardboard in bronze color. A couple of strips and lay in the middle, so that the part was better fixed.Remove the top protective layer and gently press the small part to the large one.

Now that the front side is fully prepared and assembled, it remains to assemble postcard. Big sheet of cardboard bend in half. To simplify and even bend it, first scratch the fold line with a thick needle. Then paste one part with double-sided tape around the perimeter, and attach several strips in the middle, as in the photo.
