Myra's cards now available from Barley Bay

Barley Bay the boutique greeting card publisher - Arty textile art - for your card giving

Myra's lush and detailed textile art is the bedrock of the Barley Bay greeting card collection.

Well, the title is a little cheeky because 'Barley Bay' is the boutique greeting card publisher set up by me and my partner. The first cards we published were straight prints of of artwork, and these landscape designs have remained very popular. The collection has been extended to include designs by both myself and my partner, and we now design artwork specifically for greeting cards. There is of course a lot of textile art, but also mixed media and graphics, and on some ranges we mashup both our approaches. All cards are square and are printed to a very high standard on lightly textured board, the colours and crisp details really pop out.

 

Through showing at trade shows such as Harrogate Home and Gift, BCTF and Spring Fair, we have built up a number of retailers across the UK, and we continue to roll out new designs.

The Barley Bay online shop provides a safe and secure means for consumers to buy the cards and also a number of other creative and art products we make and sell.

Myra's textile art greeting card ranges

The Landscape range is a series of high quality reproductions of Myra's large hand-made felt landscape wall art. The detail seems to jump out of these greeting cards and the colours are really punchy, but accurate to the original piece. They are 150mm square on lightly textured board with a lovely satin finish to them.

The Summer Meadows range is a series of high quality reproductions of Myra's embroidery art. The detail seems to jump out of these greeting cards and the colours are really punchy against the white background. They are 150mm square on lightly textured board with a lovely print quality and matt finish.

The Cottage Garden range is a series based on Myra's small artworks featuring handmade felt, embroidery and other embellishments. A perfect little garden is depicted.  The colours are strong and the fibre detail very clear.. They are 150mm square on lightly textured board with a lovely satin finish to them.

The very feminine Floral Number range features Myra's embroidered textile numbers floating on a delicately textured mixed media background. All key ages from 18 to 100, with '5s' from 65 to 95. They are 150mm square on lightly textured board with a lovely matt finish.

Barley Bay features many ranges of cards, not only Myra's textile art, but also graphic art, photography and some that combine mixed-media and graphics with textiles! Here are examples with a coastal theme.
