Notes from the Artist:

A 12 pack of Simplicity 1971 Pattern Cards.

I took my mothers old patterns and made simply cool cards (blank on the inside).

Three different designs (4 of each, 12 total), all from the same pattern. Each different design has the coordinating model and pattern on the card. The pattern is screened back in the background.

CONTEST TODAY!

Leave a comment with your feedback on today's featured card and be entered to win a set of 1971 vintage pattern cards!

Be sure to include your etsy shop address or an email where we can contact you if you win! One winner will be randomly selected from all comments posted before 6 a.m. EST tomorrow. The winning number will be posted in the comments and contacted by the artist.
