In the age of internet omnipresence, a homemade card has become a rare commodity. However, a collective movement honoring the nearly lost beauty of decorative calligraphy, hand-painted gold and silver embellishments and delicate illustrations has begun placing the spotlight back on card making. So, use the internet to get inspired, but, instead of sending e-cards this holiday, make or buy a homemade card, take out your pen, and give the gift of beautiful heartfelt writing. For your immediate loved ones, customize each card to show them how much you care. Plus, getting creative is super gratifying, so they are not the only ones benefiting!
