New Greeting Card Line at C&S Crafts

When I came across several vintage photographic images on Etsy I knew the time had come to try my hand at greeting cards. Well, I don’t think I could have found better photos for our new line of all occasion greeting cards. We have four unique cards, just in time for Mother’s Day (from top l to r): "Blessing of a Mother's Love", "Reflections", "A Rose for Mommy" and "Sweet Youth". And look at the pretty little matching tags which are blank on the back and perfect for gifts, journaling, a bookmark or many other possibilities! I spent a great deal of time deciding on how best to portray the images. Initially, I thought of a simple, yet charming card in which the photo was printed directly onto the blank card. It turned out to be a little, well, less than exciting. Perhaps it's just the scrapbooker in me that needs to embellish, embellish, embellish! But, I didn't want to overshadow the beauty of the pictures themselves, so I chose adornments that would hopefully enhance each one. Lovely satin ribbon, buttons, a pink paper rose, and even a little bling for added sparkle. Coming soon in our Etsy shop. Upcoming posts will detail Cinnamon & Spice's preparations for their first craft fair!
