I've been making handmade greeting cards for about 20 years, the last 15 of which mostly focusing on mixed media. I love making them and hope that the giving of a real card that you can hold in your hand has not become a lost art. You wonder sometimes, with e-cards becoming so popular, as well as how easy it is to send a sentiment by Facebook, Twitter, or phone.
Anyway, I thought I'd share with you a few of my handmade cards. I use all sorts of things to make them including:
- prints of my own work;
- vintage images;
- reclaimed scrapbooking materials
- old wallpaper, dictionary and book pages;
- paint, markers, dyes and inks;
- recycled office supplies;
- dimensional paint and glitter;
- maps, sheet music, etc;
- stamped images
and almost anything else I lay my hands on.
Here are a few samples. I'll post more next week.
Cheers, my friends!
