Meet Etsy Paper Artist & Card maker: PurlBoutique

The artist behind PurlBoutique may be a full-time Financial Analyst, but she spends her free time on a myriad of crafts. I was particularly struck by her stunning card designs, which is her main focus. "Laughter inspires me," she admits. "When people are laughing, they are in a good mood. When others are in a good mood, so am I. When I am in a good mood, I am relaxed and more creative." She's been creating her entire life. "My mom taught me to sew, I taught myself to knit and crochet, but I just recently began card-making," she explains of her latest passion. She hopes to meet like-minded artists through Etsy and "build life-long business relationships with them." She feels that "although we are 'competing' for a sale, we can all learn from each other." One thing she has picked up and would like to pass on is that good photos are a must. "A picture and its presentation speak a thousand words to how much you care about your work."

The print on that card reminds me of the Chinese Orchids I used to paint! Very pretty design.
