Greeting card Cherry Blossom, Washington, D.C.

The sweet smell of spring cherry blossoms isn't too far away. I worked diligently over the weekend to prepare some spring greeting cards. This greeting card photo is one of my all time favorites taken in 2000 with a 35 mm camera. Now, the photo has found new life, digitally remasterd. Each of my cards is hand-made with attention to detail. I cut out this embellisment (design circa mid-1800s) with tiny craft scissors. (Frosty Mugs chewed up the handles so there is a gap where the thumb goes in.)and used my favorite adhesive, Golden gel medium, to secure the sequins. Selling the cards is super, but making the cards is spectacular!
