House of cards


Yes, they arrived! I am absolutely ga-ga over these little sweeties.  Much to my surprise (and delight) the finish on these cards is the same as the mini-moo cards which I fell equally in love with last year.  For some reason, I was expecting the finish to be glossy and that was my one hesitations in placing the order but no...they have a gloriously buttery matte finish which plays perfectly to the encaustic paintings. Each card is 4x6 inches and is blank on the inside and right now there are seven different designs.  Based on how well they turned out I think I'm going to place an order for a few of my favorite "Party Girls" and "Glamour Girls" as well.  After being somewhat disappointed with prints I have had made in the past I'm really excited about the cards which can be used as notecards between friends , invitations, just moved cards or twine wrapped in sets of three as a hostess gift....my mind is spinning.  There's also the fact that when I opened the box it was as if old friends had come back to visit as most of these paintings don't live with me anymore!  I'll be adding the cards to the shop by end of day individually and in sets of three (your choice).

They look great Beth! The warm colors and tones look so inviting. I'm glad you're happy with them, it is disappointing when something like that comes back not like you expected. happy early weekend!

ooh, oooh, I can't wait to get some!
And I love your new artist statement - what an amazing process to put words to the work you do.
Good luck with all the visits - hopefully it means at least a little babysitting?

cards look awesome Beth, and congrats on the eyebuzz show/book -- opening reception was a blast.

I get to see your "houses hemmed into homes" a lot, it's opposite my piece in the book :-)

peace
