As you’ve probably figured out, I’m always looking to learn new skills. Recently, I had a chance to take an embroidery class. I immediately began using what I learned on my cards and in my 2D art. I have been embellishing both with machine embroidery for a quite some time, but I really like the look of hand embroidery and the buttons I can use when sewing by hand.

For now, these new cards are only available at art shows. My next art show is in Chattanooga, TN.
