I was asked last week to create a card for EVERY pupil and member of staff in a school and the idea for these cards sprung from that challenge! I saw some tiles with initials on when I was in Liberty the other day and really liked them, I thought using someone’s initial on a card would be effective too.
For the children I used an infant style font and for the adults I used something more traditional. I chanced upon a pack of printed origami paper in Muji in London the other day, it’s £4 for a pack of 40 sheets printed in a variety of different patterns. I used these for the children’s cards and they worked really well.
For the adults I went in a slightly different direction and used Liberty print paper. I love it but it is more expensive at £4 a sheet. I think it’s worth it though!
I hope you (and the recipients!) like them.
