Acoustic guitar card
This acoustic guitar card was crafted for my dad’s birthday in 2015.
He turned 61 that year and really loves playing the guitar. He owns both an acoustic and electric guitar. I thought it would be nice to create a card which shows a close up of his acoustic guitar. The plectrum displays his age in a subtle way.
Home decoration pop-up card
25 October 2016
Last weekend I attended a birthday of a dear friend. She got her own place some time ago and buys home decoration every now and then. I made her a pop-up greeting card, displaying a living room. The money for her birthday is hidden in the sideboard.
I want to create more pop-up cards, to experiment with them. There are so many possibilities! Who knows, there might come a pop-up Christmas card?

First handlettering greeting card
This handlettering card was crafted for my dad’s birthday in 2016.
It’s my first handlettering card ever! I crafted it after browsing through a Handlettering book.
In his free time my dad sometimes performs with his blues rock band called “Wooden Paul”, which is why I included the words “ROCK ON” 😀

Halloween Pac-Man card
Does the word Pac-Man ring a bell? Pac-Man is a classic arcade game. That’s what this greeting card is all about. Just like in the game, the ghost is being chased by Pac-Man. Pac-Man is dressed up for Halloween as a pumpkin and eats sweets on its way.
Spring paper crown
In 2016 my aunt Magda celebrated her 60th birthday. She’s a very creative person.
In The Netherlands, when you’re in kindergarten, the teacher usually makes you a paper crown when it’s your birthday. As a child, it made you feel like a king/queen 😉 I thought it would be nice to create a paper crown for her.
Flower gift wrapping
My boyfriend isn’t that much into Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas is a Dutch tradition which you can compare to Santa Claus.
I didn’t want to leave my boyfriend completely out of this tradition. That’s why I wrote him a poem, bought him a gift and wrapped it in a more crafty way than an average present 😀
