CRAFTED Handmade Holiday Tip #3

Posted November 11th, 2015

Good times are in the cards.

While we’e all tempted to rip the wrapping and tear into the tissue paper, we usually restrain ourselves to enjoy the card first. Why delay the gratification? Because cards are that important – they can provide the story, instructions and the feelings that make whatever’s in the box or bag a true gift.

At CRAFTED you can buy cards from artists of every style – humorous photos (Humphrey the Hedgehog loves celebrating, shop 133), colorful pop art (Aicher’s Kustom Pop Shoppe, shop 151) and sewn fabrics (Leather E, shop 190). Want to put your own style stamp on your cards? Take a print making lesson with an ECF Art Center instructor and take three of your own designs home for only $10. There are even cards that give a gift of their own: funds to support UNICEF from Global Gifts, shop 106.

Add cards to your shopping list and you won’t end up scrambling at the last minute to find the right one or get stuck giving a card-less present. Here’s some inspiration for you!
