Ever since I got this picture of Makani sitting in the box my French Paper Co. order came in, I wanted to make a cat in a box card! It took me some time to figure out the layout for the card, how to get the cat on the card with ears sticking out, and of course what the kitty would look like. After trying several things, I finally came up with a finished product I was happy with!
The “box” part of the card is kraft paper and the cat is block printed with paint, cut out, and attached to the card. There are many variations available for the cats- different colors, stripes, no stripes, etc. I can even make a custom cat if you’d like to send me a photo! Each card comes with a white envelope and should put a smile on your favorite cat lover’s face!
A portion of proceeds from every card will be donated to The Lange Foundation to support their work in saving dogs and cats from euthanasia and finding them loving forever homes.
Take a look at the finished product as well as the cards with some of my muses ;)
I recently received a request for music themed recipe cards for a bridal shower and had a lot of fun designing it! Each card is reminiscent of sheet music and the top edge is adorned with block printed music notes. Now with the help of her friends, this bride will be making music in the kitchen!
This order also included a custom 4″ x 2″ vertical music notes / symbol stamp– I am excited to see what is created with it!
In honor of the bride-to-be, a portion of proceeds will from these recipe cards will be donated to The American Cancer Society. I am glad we are able to contribute to and support the fight against cancer.
Wishing Christina an amazing bridal shower and thank you Cherish for this order!

I love the creativity and music theme behind this Bridal Shower!
I absolutely love getting lost in a book whether it was back when I was a kid or now! This little book worm was made for my friend Cherise for her baby shower card. She is a huge book lover and I know she will have so much fun reading stories to her baby girl. I will be listing the card on Etsy but thought, what else could I do with this? I really loved this a lot so I will be making more boys and girls who love to read and turn it into an art print as well! Stay tuned!
I’m very excited about some new items in the shop! atiliay now carries gift / favor / pastry boxes with fun text and prints. They are great for gifts, thank you goodies, weddings, and more! Nom nom nom is one of my favorites! :) All designs are hand carved and stamped.
