Card design has always gotten me creating, because I love giving and sending cards that are personal. A store-bought card, while convenient, strikes me as very impersonal, unless you take some time to pick out one specifically for the situation, that will have some meaning for the person receiving it. For me, creating a card and lettering a meaningful quote or a heartfelt message, communicates that I spent my personal time thinking about what that person might like or what might make them feel happy or better in a given situation. While there are plenty of beautiful cards for sale out there, I typically need to make my own, simply because that is what I do. From start to finish, raw materials to an end product, is how I like to tactilely interact with the world. My most recent designs were made from re-purposed art work.
