Monday Makes – A simple card design for Joshua Alexander

Hello friends.

Today’s card design is a bespoke project for a Canadian Artist Joshua Alexander.  Last year I made a small set of cards (they were white cardstock with white lettering spelling the name Ushitat…a name he uses to describe his art as it means “maker” in Cree) and sent them off to Josh as a gift.  You all know that I don’t really do bespoke projects for pay but rather gifts instead.  Keeps me happy to gift rather than for pay.  So…the story goes that Josh who is a finger painter, a reclaimed metal sculptor and an aspiring filmmaker got in touch with me to do a few more cards for him using his full name.  I felt that a slim line card would be perfect for this job and was happy to comply with his request.  We did discuss payment to where I did request some of his art (a metal rose) for payment instead.  Perhaps if I keep doing work for him I will get a full bouquet!

The purpose of me telling you this whole story is to share with you how easy the products I am using could be used for your unique purpose.  Do you have a business that would benefit from your name on a card?  Does someone  you know have a unique birthday coming up?  How about a card similar to just say Happy Birthday, Thank You or Merry Christmas very simply.  The application can be the same, once you have your template made you could make as many as you need.

Here is the cards I made today.  I hope Josh likes them.

    I subscribe to his YouTube channel and also have a print of his rooster finger painting hanging in our Tucson home. He is multi-talented. Josh will love these cards you made for him.
