Have you ever designed a handmade card for your family or friend? I recently design this journal style mixed media card for one of my customer who’s best friend was going to Australia for higher studies last week. Her flight was in two days when I got this customized card making order by the client. I refuse her first as it was very limited time for me to create something properly but on her humble requests I have to make my mind for working on it.

I made this card in one day, Continuously working on it for almost 6-7 hours & this is how I complete it timely. I can see many errors & improvements which an be made if I had proper time limit. As my client is okay & happy, So I feel good. In 24 hours after confirming this work order, I dispatch the product which is one of my fastest product design & dispatch so far.

Anyways, Have a look how I made this colorful journal style card.

I cut five layers of canson card sheet, 4 were equal in size while the first one was about an inch short in width.

I made different texture base and borders of the card sheets. For main card sheet, I cut it with a designed scissor.

For other four sheets, I cover their borders with washi tape.

I made some freehand paint texture on surface of two card sheets with paint brush & stamp.

I use a silk tassel to keep them together in a cool way.

This textured page is a bit minimal, I just put a peacock feather along with laces only. Texture can be more visible this way!

Our neighbors are having some peacocks at their place, They send me some feathers even I never asked for it. But I was happy to see so many of these feathers!

Last page of the card is so colorful, I design it with my hand doodle design & heart stamped base texture. I colored the doodle & it turned so fun! First I thought to keep it black & white but the colored version is good.

    This is stunning, Kiran! So much work, and so much creativity. I love the concept because when I look for cards I often want to buy four or five with different messages on them. i love the last page especially with the colorful hand inked design. Fantastic post, I’m glad it was long so I could see all the details. Pinning!
