Example of my hand-crafted, invitation size, blank note card design.
This card incorporates an Origami shirt made with larger flower or leaf print paper, embellished with a 'Hawaiian Lei' created from narrow strips of a re-purposed plastic grocery bag, gathered with a needle and thread. Creating a card with a popular tropical flair. The layered card stock cover of the card was made by cutting the front a little shorter using fancy cut paper scissors.
This card is great for anyone who lives in, or visits, a tropical climate. Or anyone who wishes they did! It can be used for cute 'Bon Voyage' wishes, or as invitations, place cards or thank you notes for an 'Ocean Cruise' or 'Hawaiin Luau' inspired themed party.
There is enough space on the front of the card, or the under-layer below to add catchy phrases specific to your needs. And plenty of room inside, behind the front flap to write a personalized message.
