Yesterday, I showed off some of the matted goodies I'll have available at the Arts Crawl this Saturday. Today, I'm featuring a few of the note cards that will be there.
There are five things I really like about my note cards (and why I'm proud to offer them):
1) They are one-of-a-kind! Each card features an original piece of marbled paper. No two are alike. Nor have I made any prints from the marbled paper so what you get is like nothing else out there...and never will be! It doesn't get more original than that.
2) The envelopes have matching marbled paper on them! I take a small piece from the marbled paper that is featured on the card and affix it to the front of the envelope. It's an additional touch that makes the note card feel extra special. The envelope swatch is like a teaser...giving the receiver a little hint as to the beautiful gift of art that awaits them inside. (Plus, I like to think it brightens the day of the folks working at the post office!)
3) They are ready-to-frame! Each note card acts like a mat, is signed by me (either on the front or the back), and fits into any standard 5 x 7 frame. It's like getting two things for the price of one: a note card and a frameable piece of art!
4) The quality of the paper! When you feel the note cards in your hands, you know you're holding something high in quality. The environmentally friendly cards are made from recycled card stock and are printed with a soybean-based ink. The end result is a richly textured matted frame that perfectly complements the marbled paper.
5) Affordable art! Note cards are only $5 each. How often can you say you got a one-of-a-kind, high-quality, ready-to-frame, signed piece of art for that price?!
But don't take my word for it! Come check out the note cards yourself (and watch me do a marbling demo too!) at the Arts Crawl on Saturday where a wide variety of colors, patterns, and styles will be available for purchase.
