Thank You Cards
I used to hand make all my thank you cards before my shop got busy during the months of last Autumn. When things got busy, I started sending a post card print of one of my photos with a little thank you note on the back. And while I still love that idea, I've missed sending handmade cards with each order.
Since my shop has been slower, I've had the time to make some cards, which I thoroughly enjoy doing. This latest set I made using only recycled papers. The back is a piece of recycled chip-board I found in some wine boxes that were being thrown away. I sewed a leaf which I hand cut from a piece of handmade paper I found in the thrift store. I used my little letterpress to emboss a simple "thank you" on the front. On the back, I stamped my etsy address and have room to write a simple note. A little bit of recycling, a little bit of repurposing, a little bit of sewing, a little bit of letterpress. Pretty perfect to me.
