GIFT FROM THE SEA – HANDMADE GREETING CARDS

A SERIES OF GREETING CARDS MADE FROM SEA SHELLS & SHELL BITS PICKED UP ON THE BEACH.  Watercolor background made by sprinkling salt on the watercolor.  Corrugated cardboard pieces have natural raffia tied on to hold the shells to the card.  Corrugated cardboard used to make pillow boxes to hold the three-dimensional cards, which could not go through the mail in a regular envelope.  Tags on pillow boxes are hand-painted seashells tied on with silk ribbons & raffia.
