Guys! I’m so excited to announce this new collection of greeting cards that I can’t even wait until they are finished to tell you about them! My Instagram friend, Autumn Irick, is an artist and fellow vintage seller based in San Juan Capistrano, California. I recently commissioned a collection of greeting cards from her to be sold in my online shop and my space at Pomona Antique Mart.
I sent Autumn a couple photos of cactus that I love and she is currently working on a 20 card collection inspired by the images I showed her! Every card is an original signed work of art. The designs are drawn with ink pen and rendered in watercolor. Each one is unique and one of a kind. Here are some the progress images she has been sharing on her Instagram account, @CAheartofgold.
I’m hoping to release this new collection of cards by the end of the month. Stay tuned because I know they will go fast. These are not only greeting cards but framable works of art. And they look so cute grouped together! How amazing would it be to create a gallery wall of 6 to 9 of them!?
We are planning a joint giveaway to promote the collection on Instagram. Follow us both @mendezmanor and @CAheartofgold for details on when that will happen. Autumn does take commissions but this particular “Cactus Collection” will be sold exclusively through my shop for the time being.
Again, there are no prints here! Each one is original and signed by Autumn. If you see one of these you love let me know with a direct message or email. I’m willing to take some pre-orders! They will be sold for $14.99 each and that includes free shipping if needed. Thanks for reading!
