Gift Tags!

Zana Gift TagTo go along with the holiday cards, Amira also made gift tags from my artwork! They are around the size of business cards. They come with small envelopes, but could also be hole punched in the corner and attached to a gift with ribbon. I’m so lucky to have such a thoughtful sister! Thanks, Amira!

pop-ups and anniversaries

Today we’re celebrating my parents’ 32nd wedding anniversary- I didn’t make them a card this year, but I thought I’d share some old ones..

I made this pop-up card for their 24th. It was pretty much my first and last stab at paper cutting, which I’d love to do more of, but would need the proper tools and a whole set of skills I don’t yet have.

This next card may have been an anniversary card or for something else- all i know is that it was for my parents, so I guess it fits with this post..

Also mildly related- we’re having a party at our house this evening and we used my postcards as invitations.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
