A handwritten note takes on extra meaning when the card is homemade. Artist Jeanne Williamson provides ideas for creating your own in Uncommon Cards: Stationery Made With Recycled Objects, Found Treasures, and a Little Imagination.
Williamson offers instructions for 52 card designs, many incorporating such unusual materials as a bit of netting from a produce bag or the corrugated sleeve from a carryout coffee cup. Some cards are stamped, some are stitched, and all are unlike anything you’ll find in a store.
She even includes card stock to get you started.
Uncommon Cards is published by Running Press and sells for $20 in softcover.
