Made with love by CR Design

Hello! I'm Chantal, I have been a Graphic Designer for years but had always wanted to make my own cards that expressed the sentiments I couldn't quite find in the shops. I would spend a really long time picking out just the right card for one of my loved ones but had a longing to just try making them for myself.

This year I turned 40, I thought as I've always loved cards and wanted to try my hand at making my own ones and share them with others, that this would be a significant year to start. 

I started with some expressing tenderness to people who were grieving (as I lost my Mum to cancer 4 years ago, she was the one who would sit and paint with my brother and I as young children at home and encourage us in our art). 

I then decided to do a range of different subjects that meant something to me and also have some scripture/Christian themed cards in my shop as my faith is at my core.

I don’t like licking envelopes because they taste yucky, so I thought I’d make some stickers to go with the cards that expressed love or self care messages too. I want the recipients of the cards to pop the kettle on, grab a cup of tea/coffee (something comforting) and take a moment to rest and read their card from their loved one telling them - "they’re seen, they’re not alone and they are so loved".

I'm originally from the UK but have been living in the US for 7 years now - so that's why you'll probably notice my spelling - hope this doesn’t offend you! And I love to bake, sugar is my love language.

Thank you so much for stopping by and well done if you got to the end of this essay! 

With love,
