I love to make things. All sorts of things. Especially beautiful things that I can give to other people. I have always been one of those people who makes personalised cards to give to my family and friends because it's a lovely to be able to share what I create and an awesome feeling being able to say "Here I made this card just for YOU".
Since arriving in Portland I have been creating little cards to send to people both as a way of continuing to create new art, and also to share my creations with the people I love.
Now I'm taking it a step further and creating cards for YOU to give to your family and friends!
If you remember my last project you will know that I am meant to be working through TEN projects, and Project Hummingbird was the first. It's been a little bit of a struggle with the whole "artist" thing since Project Hummingbird. I kinda let it all get swept under the carpet and things like calling myself an artist, blogging about being an artist, actually doing a lot of art just kinda stopped.
So it's time to put myself out there again. I have decided to just call myself a "maker" now though.
My latest project is a card pack with 5 totally unique cards which you can hand out as you wish, or just keep for yourself, because lets face it, they're pretty dang awesome!
Here's three of the designs I have made so far. I would love to know what you think.
I will be getting these professionally printed on beautiful folded card paper. While I would love to create each individual card from scratch, that would probably mean I would be working on this project for a VERY long time, so there won't be any originals this time.
Each 5 pack will cost $25 AUD plus international shipping.
This project will work the same as Project Hummingbird, you will be able to pre-order your pack soon, however I won't go ahead with this project if I don't reach my minimum order which covers the costs of materials etc.
Minimum order for this project to go ahead is 30 packs.
I am thinking BIG with this one! I would love to sell 50 packs, but I can't do that without your help! I would love it so much if you would share this around, and even if my cards aren't your thing, if you know someone who you think would like them, it would be amazing if you could let them know.
I will have more news shortly and info for pre-ordering!
