Get Started

You absolutely LOVE handmade vintage style cards.

You can spend hours perusing Pinterest, looking for the perfect card idea. But when you find it, you immediately think:

  • “I could never make a card like that! I’m not creative enough!”
  • You have no idea where to find that gorgeous ribbon used on this card.
  • You’re not sure what that unique fold is called, or how to make it.
  • And, you know it will take you hours to find all these supplies, let alone actually make a card like this yourself!

You’re in the right place!
