The Making of Thanks

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how I made this year's Thanks cards, which are currently available for purchase in my shop. As with many of my projects, it all starts with several hand-lettered sketches (above) which are narrowed down to my top choices. From there, I scan and begin the clean-up process in Illustrator.

Here's a look at the sketch vs. the finished version. Notice the differences?

Then, I transfer the reversed image onto a lino tile and begin carving.

Add a little ink, and...

VoilĂ ! The finished pieces!

Pick up your 4-pack of these handmade Thanks cards for only $20 in my shop.

Thank YOU!
