So here is a little glimpse into my card making this past weekend.
So much of the work is just done in my head... thinking and planning and cutting and rearranging all before the card finally takes place, so I often try to make multiples of the same card.
Each card is still individual, still handmade, still made with love. Each card touched multiple times over the process... which is what makes handmade worth more than a simple dollar store card... or even better than Hallmark...
Once it comes together, there is a little bit of this
and a little bit of that...
I love the extra touch of a coordinating picture on the inside of the card.
and then there is the challenge of a matching envelope. This one, I put out for survey ... on instagram, and on facebook; and if I actually counted the votes, it would probably be pretty even... so I made some of each! :)
I love making cards...
Community Conversation: Do you need a birthday card anytime soon? :) As I think and dream and plan and hope for an online shop someday, what would you be willing to pay for a handmade card? As I begin to support the handmade community, do you have any of your favorite shops you would be willing to share with us?
happy to be jumping back in this week with regular posting... here's hoping I can stick with it.
