I love papercrafting, abstract paintings and photography. They are my base for designing unique greetingcards. Every card is a reflection of my thoughts and feelings at that specific moment. A greeting card designed for a unique person and a unique moment in life. Which can be a happy moment in life but also a sad one. Both moments appear in our lives constantly.
Every single piece is made by hand with love and mindful attention. Every card takes me 2-3 hours to make it. It starts with creating the design, choosing the right technique and colourcombination, then collecting the right materials and instruments. Finally the card is assembled piece by piece by hand.
I don’t use printers and I don’t like to use sentiments. I feel a sentiment directs to much what you should feel by seeing a card and not what you really automatically feel by seeing the design alone. I love to see the sender of the card expressing that very special sentence for that very special person without being troubled by a misfitting standard line I already chose. I profide the scenery, the sender has to finish the rest of the feeling for the receiver.
Although I have organised my cards in the standard greetinggroups for the viewers of this site, they shure can all be used for any occasion and for any reason.
I don’t think in gender or age and I don’t direct my cards by using certain colouring. A card is suitable and fits a person or not. That’s why I love to use a variety of styles in my cards. There’s always a card which is perfectly suitable for that special person.
The cards are unique items since no duplicates are possible. The greetingcards are blank inside, but on different by hand decorated writingpaper to write your own special message.
For papercrafting I use a variety of learned techniques and different products like stamps, dies, embossingfolders and stencils. For abstract designs I mostly use acrylic paints or inkblendings with different inks.
I love a classic elegant style in my cards. Colourcombinations can vary by different projects, but they always contain silver or gold.
I also love tactile aspects in my cards. Fabric like satin ribbons, lace,, organza or even silk are often in my cards. But also fake leather or wooden embellishments can be found. I love to use glitter, rhinestones, gemstones or pearls. Anything classy that makes a card “feel” onto your fingertops is in my stash.
The endresult of all above is an elegant greetingcard from heart and mind, specially designed to express your sincere feelings towards someone…
