Each of these greeting cards represents a different handmade papermaking technique. When I make my papers I follow these basic instructions.
I used Arnold Grummer’s trifold window cards for each of these. For the first card, I dry embossed a piece of handmade paper and inserted it into the window card following the instructions on the package. Handmade paper embosses beautifully!!
The second card features a handmade paper casting using Arnold Grummer’s gingko leaf mold.
The third card displays a dried leaf on a background of handmade paper. I dried this coleus leaf using the garden press. The paper has botanical inclusions.
I plan to make several more of these greeting cards sets to use for gifts during this upcoming year.
