I make unusual and handmade cards for all occasions in all sizes. I also do 3-D and decoupage cards. I cover most of the occasions including Bon Voyage, Sympathy, Religious, Wedding, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day. The cards are all left blank on the inside for your own message and are all supplied with matching envelopes. They are packed into cellophane bags for protection.
