Many Edits Later ~ The Brush Stroke Heart Design

How many of you have started a project that morphed into something totally different?

This card heart design was one of those projects for me. I had bought a heart shaped puzzle with plans to use the pieces for a photo project. I worked on that project but wasn't getting what I had originally envisioned. 

I decided to use the completed heart shaped puzzle as a template for a heart shape using a dry brush. I made several attempts with different brushes but wasn't happy with any. I made one last try on a different type of paper to get what I wanted. After photographing it I started working on a design for Valentine's Day cards as seen below.



Since I've made these eight greeting cards designs as templates, it is easy to change the names and event as you can see how I did below. 

Easily Change Template Text

I have ordered at least 100 cards from Zazzle in the greeting and note card sizes. The print quality is excellent and I love that they are personalized for each recipient. Just click the image and visit the link to see your eight options with this ragged heart outline design. Get a head start on Valentine's Day or personalize it for a special occasion. 

How do you personalize cards? 

If you have any questions on this card please leave a comment. Thanks.

It is SO Easy To Add Your Personal Touch

Who says a personalized card if difficult to find?

It's so easy to personalize greeting cards in my Zazzle ecommerce store. Nearly all of my photography and digital artwork greeting and note sized cards are templates or left for you to customize.

Yes, customize.

This adorable chocolate Labrador on a chair is one of many of my cards that I have personally purchased. The glossy cover is beautifully printed color and there's ample room on the inside (left and right) to add your personal message. You can remove any text in the template to leave an empty interior and room for a handwritten note too. You can add text to the cover in the customize option or simply use the template to change the inside text.

Personalize It!
Add or remove text and even photos. Change the style, color and size of a text font. In addition, you have a choice of the greeting or note sized cards.

The cards are printed on 110 lb, 12.5 point thick, semi-gloss paper with a matte finish inside for smudge-free writing. The greeting card is 5" x 7" portrait style and 7" x 5" landscape. The note card size is 4" x 5.6" portrait style and 5.6" x 7" landscape. Adding your photos or changing the text is no extra charge. Each card size comes with a plain white envelope.

You'll find an increasing volume discount starting with an order of 10+ cards. Great for invitations and thank you notes when you need more than one. Earn the volume discount when you order a variety of 10+ different cards. Yes, you can.

I offer an eclectic variety of photography and digital art in my entire store. See how you can personalize a special card from my greeting card collection.
