Making these types of cards is the whole reason I got into the paper business. There’s something so special about telling a story through a card and getting to cut out every little piece and assemble it by hand. This card was a birthday card from one friend to another; can it get any more special than that? See more of my custom cards here!
Finally! It’s better late than never, so here is part one of my Christmas card + tag set that I’m releasing this year. Next week, I’ll show you the the 3D layered ones, but for now, I hope you’ll be happy with these. Printed on smooth white cover paper with black ink, this is one of my favorite sets yet. Find them all in the Shop!
Do you have a co-worker that has saved you multiple times, offers great professional advice, etc. — and therefore, qualifies to get a “you are the best co-worker” custom card? Well, the gal who ordered this card sure does! We put her co-worker in a pair of slacks holding a stack of folders, her phone on hold and her computer on.

This card was custom ordered for a birthday boy. His girlfriend based the card on one of their favorite movies, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. There’s this well-known image of the two main characters from that movie lying on the ice together. But since this birthday was a spring birthday, we opted to have the couple lying down in the grass instead of on the ice.
And here’s a little insight on what the receiver of the card had to say. This makes my job so much more amazing:
“This was the best card I have ever gotten. My girlfriend Maryna and I both really love the movie ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ because in many ways it’s a story about us and our relationship. Even before we dated, this was my favorite movie; I watched it many, many times, and memorized many of the lines from the film. One of my favorite scenes is when Joel & Clementine go to this frozen lake at night and lay on the ice, looking up at the stars. Even though both of them have really difficult lives, at that one moment none of it mattered and they could just enjoy the now, forgetting about their problems. That’s what the card is about. It’s a reminder that no matter how difficult life can be, I can forget about everything and just enjoy my amazing moments with Maryna. It is definitely the most meaningful and thoughtful card I’ve ever received.”
This was one of my most favorite cards to make. When I got the call to design a custom thank you card that someone wanted to give to Mindy Weiss, one of the most sought after wedding + party planners in the US, I got giddy with excitement (of course).
I put Mindy at a potential client meeting, where she stands ready to present her grand ideas for a big event. Tables with centerpieces and cake designs are placed behind her. This card had over 65 separate pieces to cut and assemble together; maybe that’s why I had so much fun. Either way, it turned out fabulous and couldn’t be more happy with how it came out.
