Meet Arnold! For a stork, he has serious swagger and he is the latest addition to my family of one-of-a-kind hand sewn vintage paper Sweet Tweet Cards! And a perfect Baby Congratulations Card! After all, babies come from Storks right?

Inspired by ephemera and obsessed with stickers, the birds were first hand cut from the 1948 volumes of THE AMERICAN EDUCATOR ENCYCLOPEDIA (published by The United Educators, Inc.; Chicago, 1948) and backed with industrial cellophane adhesive. Neurotic about details, I carefully cut out the name of the bird and adhered this to the bird image then re-cut & trimmed the bird itself. Using an 'older than me' Singer sewing machine, I zig-zag stitched a piece of deckle-edged jet-black fine art paper to the front of the card. Next the little collaged bird is centered and permanently stuck to the card. (I ♥ STICKERS) Using a pointed nib pen and black waterproof Sumi ink, I hand lettered the name of the bird and added my signature calligraphic flourishes. Each card is unique and an original and will probably never be made again (unless of course I happen to come across the same encyclopedia set)!
