Featured Artist

Our featured artist makes wonderful greeting cards. Come meet

Here is our interview with the artist, Peggy -

Briefly describe what you make?

I make handcrafted greeting cards for many occasions. I also do special orders for invitations and list gift tags.

What mediums do you enjoy working in most?

I love to stamp. I usually make my stamps 3 dimensional and watercolor them for a soft effect. I always add glitter for a little sparkle! I am a glitter-aholic!

How long have you been creating craft?

I have been making cards for almost 8 years now. It has been a growing hobby for me and now is a lucrative passion.

How did you get started?

I started making cards when one of my best friends asked me to help her with her wedding invitations. I loved it so much that I ran out to buy my own supplies. I have definitely improved over the years but I still try new things all the time!

Where does the name of your shop come from?

Last year I participated in a large Christmas bazaar. The application asked for a booth name and after much contemplation, Beautiful Greetings was born.

What would you most want people to know about your work?

I make each card completely unique. My cards are never exactly the same unless ordered that way. I always add something extra to my cards such as 3-d characters, hardware, ribbon and of course glitter!

What words of advice do you have for other artists?

Nothing feels better than selling your craft, especially if you love making them. Knowing that others love your work as much as you do is so fulfilling!


Wonderful. Please be sure to visit Peggy at her SHOP!

While you are at ETSY there are some wonderful new fine art photo prints for you to see at PASTPERFECT.
