I spent most of today preparing my lists of stamps for my topical collections. One of the topics I will be collecting are postage stamps depicting mailboxes and postal delivery.
As I did my research, I came upon this marvelous 1971 stamp issued in Belgium. So of course, I designed a greeting card for it! ~TH~
This morning I completed a bookmark card, using my now sturdy paper dinner napkin. I used the test scrap of napkin to create an attractive bookmark to be included in the matching greeting card.
I created a pocket for the inside of the greeting card, cutting viewing windows into the pocket so the recipient can see the bookmark images, yet the item itself is secure in the card.
I cut an old ledger page to size so it would fit nicely inside for the message.
This is a large greeting card, 8.5 x 5.5 inches. ~TH~

I have learned a few things lately, mostly about things I don’t need. I originally set up a website for Hitt Paper Art that is way more complex than necessary. As usual, I mostly just need a blog for communication with my friends and my customers.
Ta-da! Here it is. I will be leisurely dismantling the old site (the dot com site), and placing all of the important information about the cards and artwork here. Thanks to you folks who are checking in. More to come soon. ~Tom~
