Weekend Sale on Handmade Greeting Cards!

Happy Friday!  As you know, I recently launched my Etsy shop, Aviate Press (*checks box off bucket list).  I have been making greeting cards for about a year now and I finally decided to take the plunge and post some designs for the world to see. I will be posting plenty more designs as I improve my ability to comprehend Photoshop, but I have managed to edit a few well enough to share with the online community.

If you like what you see in my shop, you can use the coupon code “AvaMarieDoodles” to get 20% off of your purchase! This will only last through the weekend, so you gotta act fast! Here’s some of what you’ll find:

CongRATulations Greeting Cards Are Now Available via Etsy!

I am very excited to start selling my personal favorite greeting card via the AviatePress Etsy shop!  After lots of trial and error, I managed to 1) edit the artwork using the very cheap (as in free) version of Photoshop known as Gimp, 2) find paper that is ink jet compatible, 3) take these product photos with the help of fellow maker The Postman’s Knock, and 4) work up the nerve to hit “post now” just a few minutes ago.

Please let me know what you think! If anyone out there is also on Etsy, I would love to stop by your shop! Comment below and I will check it out.
