first, i could have made my own. my card could've been handmade, creative, meaningful. but instead, i'm writing somebody a note that is still heartfelt but unfortunately presented on a cheesy commercial greeting card.
second, even if i had not made one myself but if i had given myself a few days in advance i could've bought a special card on etsy and could've felt good about at least supporting the artist community.
so finally today i got around printing my own little supply of greeting cards, scoring and folding them myself. they're all prints of my original artwork, some of them are "from the archives" a.k.a. the ant hill storage chambers. we'll update our shop soon to include some of these cards.
what about you? do you make your own cards at all times or do you also sometimes have to - at the last minute - run to the store?
