About sunbabymakes

Sales 131
On Etsy since 2015

Nothing brightens my day like opening my mailbox to find a letter or a thoughtful card from someone who loves me back home. I started my shop because I wanted to create greeting cards and other paper goods that would give others the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes with getting something in the mail. It's a feeling that e-mails and text messages just can't replicate.

My art is inspired by the idea of home, coziness, and family. I am equally inspired by my Norwegian heritage and Scandinavian folklore and craft traditions. I'm a passionate crafter, so the textures of wooly handknits and carefully-stitched samplers often find their way into my illustrations.

All my greeting cards are printed on 350g recycled paper and sold ready-to-send with a matching recycled kraft paper envelope. I hope you find something here that you'd like to share with a loved one.

Additional policies and FAQs
Buyers are responsible for all duties, taxes, levies or fees incurred at point of entry to the buyer's country. As stated on, most sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Etsy does not expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes. For this reason I encourage buyers to know about their country's import laws and customs/duties.
