handmade cards on etsy


I've always been a fan of handmade cards, but I've lately gotten into incorporating watercolor and "modern calligraphy" into my cardmaking to create simple and fun designs. Watercolor is such a versatile medium and adding black ink makes things instantly look so polished. I'm still working on the handwriting and modern calligraphy part- it definitely requires a steady hand. I think the hardest part has been trying different fonts. I'm taking a modern calligraphy workshop next month and am excited to hopefully learn a few tools of the trade there.


In the meantime, I wanted to shamelessly promote some of my work I've posted in my Etsy shop (check it out here). I go on cardmaking binges (it's so relaxing), and then later realize I don't have enough people to give these to, so I post them on Etsy! All of the cards are 100% handmade by me (totally freehand, no tracing/templates) and are all unique designs.
