So, I had a message from Ian Rowland (http://www.ianrowland.com) via a well-known social media website. Essentially, it listed that these cards he now calls ‘Ian Cards’, as, in his words, his name is Ian, and they’re made from cards.
I am going to continue calling them Wow Cards, short for ‘Wow Cards – cheap imitation Ian Cards’, so that I can avoid branding clashes. If you’ve not yet been to Ian’s website, bought a copy of his book, and sent him pictures of you used underwear, then go there and do so. But not that last one. No, really, Not that.
Back to the cards. Following on from the cards I posted previously, I went to a Cheap Home Shop, and bought a single use craft knife and cheap cutting board (providing the backdrop for most of these pictures). The result was much clearer lines, better cuts, and the ability to start creating cards like these:
So this is the next card that I wanted to show, and it is the first ‘complicated’ card that I worked out. This card has two loops, back-folded, and then ‘locked’ in the middle in a kirigami ‘lock’. Quite a pretty card, very intricate to cut, quite fiddly to fold, but very rewarding to look at, hold, and puzzle and ponder over for quite some time!
So – Now I have a request (if people are still reading) – what can be done with Wow Cards? So far, I have framed a few, given as unique presents, allowed myself to be bribed into making them, and used them as general talking points or inspiration points during training sessions. What else could they be used for?
