It is so exciting to receive a big colorful cheery handwritten cards in the mail. So, whether you want to say I love, you, hello, Happy Birthday or thank you, a card is a great way to let someone know you care. And for about five bucks, you can totally afford it!
About the cards
My card images are professionally printed at a local printer and then I cut and adhere them to thick card stock creating a 5″ x 7″ card. The image is slightly smaller than 5×7″ and there is usually a thin white border around the edge. I add another piece of card stock to the inside as a liner, so that the card is extra thick and sturdy and there will be no bleed through if you use markers to sign your card. Comes with a white envelope.
Customization is never an extra charge. So if you are pressed for time, I will hand write your message and the envelope and use your return address and I will send your card to your recipient. It will be as though it came directly from you.
Easy for you
If time is on your side, I will send the card to you. You can still have me write an occasion like “Happy Anniversary” or “Thinking of you” inside in colorful bold letters, there is a drop down menu on the order page to give you some ideas for a greeting. You may choose one of those, or tell me your own message or leave it blank.
I started making these square cards , because certain paintings need to be formatted as a square. I think they are really nice and different. The card is 5 ½” x 5 ½” and the envelope is 6″x 6″.
I currently have two sets;
I offer smaller cards in sets of four. The card size is 5½ ” X 4¼ ” they are blank inside (sets are not customizable). Each comes with a white envelope. I use color card stock on these smaller cards. The inner lining is a light color so your writing will be easy to read.
Cat Greeting card set This is a collection of some of my digitally created cat designs. I designed these images on the computer, not with a paintbrush.
Beach Greeting cards – Four of my ocean inspired paintings.
I am in the process of turning my designs into coloring cards. You can color it in yourself or let the recipient color in. Either way, it’s a unique way to give a very special card to someone. Here is my first one, you can get it in my Etsy shop it’s from one of my cats on fences paintings. I will do a whole series of cat coloring cards and a series of suns, because those are two of my most popular styles. I expect to be adding many new coloring page cards to my collections, so if you are interested in this please subscribe to my blog. I will be making a special post on this subject when they are ready.
