Pat Winter on her blog Gatherings showed some beautiful fabric cards that had been made by her good friend Jan Obertein.  I fell in love with them and ordered one from Jan. I did not specify any particular one and she picked one for me that is so pretty. I think they would make a great birthday or anytime card for a good friend who you don't send an actual gift but want to do more then a paper card.

Here is the card I bought.  Note the neat envelope that came with it.  I can't give this away because it is so pretty.  I have it on a shelf where I see it every day.

If you are interested Jan has not set up an etsy shop yet but hopes to in the future.  You can reach her by email at

I would have to keep it too - there's no way I would want to part with it!

4Definitely a very special card. I think I would struggle to send that to anyone!

thank you Freda,
How generous you are with reference to helping me get started with my ETSY shop. I was so attracted to your linens as I collect them also, can't wait to see the finished spread you are making. Warmly, Jan O
