Skinny laMinx Laser Cut Card

Textile maven Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx been busily cutting away her latest creation – The Table Mountain laser cut card. This intricately cut greeting card depicts the Mother City’s favourite mountain in diminutive detail and is one of the smallest and most elaborate paper cut-outs Skinny laMinx has made to date. With three stylised versions of protea flowers in front, the back of the card features a truly tiny cut-out of Table Mountain complete with cable station on top. Designed as a greeting card, it can also be used as a place name tag, but  it makes a cute standalone piece too. We think it's the perfect combo of careful detailing and local iconography. The Table Mountain Laser Cut Card retails for R70 and is available from the Skinny laMinx Bree St shop as well as from their online store.    Text: Mila Crewe-Brown An interior design graduate and writer with an insatiable passion for design, decor and travel, Mila Crewe-Brown cut her teeth working at Condénast House & Garden magazine before embarking on a year and a half journey across three continents.
