Hand-Made Cards are an Awesome Gift!
I stumbled across an etsy store called Cornerstone LAE Designs the other day that had the most amazing hand-made cards. The cards have an intricate layering that is stunning and new designs arrive regularly. I was so impressed that I ordered a couple of them right away. The cards range between $5 and $7 (some go higher) plus $1.65 shipping, remarkably cheap when you see the detailed craftsmanship of these cards. After ordering the two items, the seller, Leisha, refunded the shipping for one of the cards since they were shipped together. When my package arrived, I was
pleasantly surprised to receive a third card for free and a thank you note. Now, that is what I call business relations! Leisha will custom-design a card for you with just about any image you want (she once made a card of a chair with a bunch of bowls on it), and with any phrase your heart desires at no additional charge, you just have to "convo" her (as the Etsy jargon goes.
Instead of spending your precious dough on crappy Hallmark sentiments, try ordering hand-made works of art.
Leisha has recently opened a sister shop on Etsy to sell just her paper designs called Paper Compositions.
