Series of Greeting Cards – A Little Something

The flowers are just beginning to show themselves here popping up through the ground in the port city of Saint John. For me this is generally a very happy time of year where most of the drawings and illustrations that I completed during Wintertime are scanned and turned into prints and paper goods.

New Valentine Greeting Cards and a mini giveaway

Update – comments are now closed. I will announce the winner of the four pack of Valentine’s on Tuesday! xoxo

Over the last week I have been working on a couple of new designs for Valentine’s Cards. And they are completed and listed in the shop now. The first is called Hearts on Strings and the latter is entitled The Flamboyant Heart.

Each set contains six matching greeting cards and six envelopes. Each card measures 4.25 by 5.5 inches (10,5cm by 14cm). They are blank inside so that you can write your own special greeting.

Mini Giveaway

Leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win a set of four greeting cards. The set contains two Flamboyant Heart’s and two Hearts on Strings cards. This set of four greeting cards were my test prints until I got the colours corrected. Rest assured they are still cute as ever! I’ll draw the winner on Monday night.

And if you really want to make a big statement with the one you love, don’t forget that I create Tickled Pink Hearts in miniature greeting card sets of eight as posted earlier. These little sets although tiny take me longer to produce than their larger cousins.

Each set of Valentine’s themed cards are listed in the Valentines 2010 Section of my shop along with some other items I feel would make beautiful gifts for Valentine’s Day to the ones you love. Order early as my supplies of each item is limited and then there is that shipping part to! I want them to arrive on time for gift giving.

•8 seals (colours may vary)

Greeting card size – 1 3/8″ x 7/8″ (35mm by 22mm)

Use them for gift tags, scrapbooking, dollhouse miniatures or anything else your heart fancy’s.

I created a makeshift work table to photograph from using the wall, portfolios, cardboard and a large pad of cartridge paper which you can see in this post (last photo). Two nights ago I purchased two navy blue folding metal saw horses. I will be buying plywood and having it cut to size with the help of Dad to create a proper work table to stand at this weekend!

The first two sets can be seen here.

fanshefolds from New York. She has access to so many exciting papers that I can only dream of getting here in Saint John. Many of my original ACEO’s are created on her rounded corner acid free ACEO stock.

The mini envelope craft punch makes these sweet envelopes that measure 1.5 x 1 inch (38mm x 22mm). They are tiny!

I created miniature greeting card sets using the punch and various other tools that will remain a mystery to you as I can’t give all my secrets away. ;)
