Iron Work Patterns

I hope you are enjoying these intricate iron work patterns from 1895.  They are inspiring.  I can see them used as backgrounds or even the main focus of a card. They could be used with one of the vintage images at my other site Clearly Vintage.  The half circle one could be used as a fan.  I have so many ideas and I know you do too.   I would love to see a project or card you have made with one of them.  Email me a photo of your project by Sunday 1/23/2012 at 6pm EST and I will post it here.  Be sure to include your name and the country you are from for me to include in the post.

Here is my project.


  1. Love these - thanks so much Cora.

  2. Thank you! These are beautiful! Edwina Brown

  3. Thanks for sharing the iron patterns. Your project came out beautifully.

  4. Beautiful digital stamps Cora! I didn't see an email address for you so I thought I'd try leaving a message here. I'm wondering if you have ever considered creating some digital stamps out of some of the vintage valentines? McMahon Five has a few, but otherwise I can't find any. Let me know what you think. Thanks! Melisa

  5. These are beautiful ironwork designs, Cora, and I am amazed by the little fan you created!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love to hear from you.
