Around three years ago, I was asked to draw multiple Christmas cards, the only way I could think of to go about doing so was through pen and water colour. The cards I created were 10cm/10cm and possess some simple and sweet illustrations of animals. The people I sent them to liked them so much that they commissioned me to draw several more so that they could give them to other people.
Seeing that these cards were quite a hit, I then created a Facebook page, “Hannah’s Handmade Cards” as well as an Instagram page, “hanshandmadecards” where I was constantly posting all the different card illustrations. For the following six months I was constantly posting and selling cards, making quite a bit of pocket money. Then, unfortunately, the hype died down and so did my card making.
I still draw cards for family and friends, but that is as far as my one hit wander card business goes. :’)
