Welcome to Handmade Cards by Kim

Hi, I'm Kim. Thank you for visiting Handmade Cards by Kim where I think you'll be spoiled for choice with these delightful creations and where you can learn how to make them yourself.

I've been making greeting cards and marketing them through my company, "A Small Work of Art"® since 1996 but my new popular line of Enhanced Prints has only been available in many fine stores. Now I'm excited to be able to offer them to you online at this site.

Handmade greeting cards offer you so much more than mass produced greeting cards. They're a refreshing stand out from the crowd; they're the ones that you notice when you go back through your holiday cards or birthday cards. They make you know that the sender may have been a little more thoughtful when choosing that handmade Christmas card or Love card.

Today's printing technology allows us to make handmade greeting cards that are unique and competitively priced.

Each of my handmade cards is a print of one of my own original hand painted cards and each print is uniquely enhanced by me.

No two cards are the same.
