The creator of these cards is very talented. Many layers are used to create a 3-dimensional effect for these beautiful cards.

My artist neighbor (and friend) with a black cat really liked the card.

About

From Couch Potato to Creative Entrepreneur

Crafting and creating has been running through my blood for several years now. I am actually a late bloomer. About 15 years ago, I got off the couch, stopped watching soaps and tried my hand at everything that even remotely looked artistic or crafty. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!

I love color and patterns and what more perfect place to find them than in a garden. So I became a gardener, mixing and matching textures, colors and shapes. I’ve always been inspired by flowers and nature.

I started quilting, I used every color I could find, mixing them into beautiful and functional quilts and wall hangings. I loved the intricate patterns you could create with fabric. Soon, I began doing that with paper.

Paper is a beautiful and very versatile medium to work with. Although, I never got into the scrapbooking thing, I do love making greeting cards. I feel that everyone should send physical reminders of love and friendship, and compassion and celebration to others in the mail. It is more personal than email and is something that can be kept forever. Or framed and hung on a wall.

The other thing I love is bling. Pretty, shiny things! I like chandelier earrings and my budget couldn’t keep up with my passion for them so I decided to make my own. It allows me to customize the color, the jewels and metals used, and the look of each pair.

My other claim to fame is a hatband I’ve designed for cowgirl hats. I call it Cowgirl Bling - Jewelry for your Hat! When I bought my horse and started showing, I found that you had to wear a cowboy hat. The only hatbands available were clunky and ugly braids and leather and feather concoctions. Not my style. After searching for something more delicate and pretty and not finding anything, I decided to create my own. The materials I use are swarovskis, gems, other crystals, beads and metal findings. As a bonus, you can show in the morning and wear it as a necklace at night!

I joined Etsy in October 2012, because I needed an avenue to sell apart from our local craft fairs. I am happy to be part of a group that showcases quality handmade items.

Additional policies and FAQs
Customization:
For the cards: Colors: Most of my cards can be custom ordered in different colors or color schemes.

Wording/Sentiment: Personalize the inside of this card with your own words, one of two ways:

Option #1
Just put your request in the note to seller at the time of purchase and let me know how you would like the inside or outside of the card to read. This will be printed on a separate sheet of paper and adhered to the inside of the card.

Option #2
I also have translucent inserts with sentiments that can be customized. They are meant to be inserted into the card and signed. This allows you to send the card and the recipient can turn around and send it someone else. A form of recycling!

All of my cards are suitable for framing.

For most digital downloads I will be happy to customize it for you; things like names, colors, wording if design makes it possible.
