Hand-crafted greeting and occasion cards

Announcement   Hello and welcome to my shop. The first cards I want to introduce you to are my baby cards.

That said, watch my shop as other card catagories appear - wedding, engagement, anniversary, birthday, holiday, and more. People buy my cards because they are unique. An e-card is quick and easy to send and no postasge is required. A hand-crafted card proclaims to the recipient just how special you think they are.

Due to the nature of the materials (some paper is recycled, buttons are upcycled), each card is unique and cannot be recreated.

About

My Once Upon a Time

My interest in cards began when I accompanied my daughter to her first craft fair to sell her jewelry (see Katy J's Jewels - www.etsy.com/shop/KatyJsJewels). Though I enjoyed her company, I kept thinking that I could be a vendor too. Looking around, I knew I wanted to engage in an art that wasn't saturated and I certainly didn't want to compete with my own daughter.

Card making seemed appealing. The next step was to make my cards stand out from the others. I read all the card making books I could find and knew I had to put that information aside, it was already out there.

What's special about Pat Jones cards? Most of my cards are dimensional so they have depth. These cards have been crafted with humor, whimsy, sincerity, and love. They coincide with the sentiments of the sender.

The papers come from all over the globe. Whenever possible, I upcycle envelopes, stamps, buttons, lace, and trim. Once the elements and embellishments have been determined, it takes approximately half an hour to create a single card. My cards are primarily one of a kind. While the theme may be the same, the elements and embellishments are different in each card.

Ideas for cards come from just about anywhere. Holidays claim their own cards. Needing a card for a special event pushes me to try something new. People are sometimes surprised to see that I make so many cards with a masculine theme. I send cards to the men in my life - my husband, brother, and brothers-in-law. Also, some of my best customers are men.

I thank my daughter for her inspiration and my husband for his encouragement and not saying this endeavor was a goofy idea. Please enjoy my shop.
