I've always loved making cards. It's something that hearkens back to childhood, when I used to fold a sheet of construction paper in half, write "I LOVE YOU MOMMY" or whatever, and proudly hand it over to the recipient. I have my kids make their own cards most of the time, because let's be honest - it's nice to receive something that was made especially for you.
A few weeks ago, I was brainstorming about other items to sell in our Etsy shop, because while it's nice to sell art, there's not a HUGE turnover when it comes to art prints. We had some smaller art prints lying around, and suddenly something clicked. Photos. Cards. Greeting cards. Handmade cards. Handmade photo cards. I could do this!
I have had so much fun playing around with different styles - there's such an endless variety of papers, card sizes and shapes, etc., and what works with one style of photography may not work for everything. We have lots of decisions to make in the future, but we are pretty pleased with our first sets of corrugated kraft paper photo cards. Head on over to our Etsy shop and take a look!
