Unique, handmade Greeting Cards
All my cards are unique and handmade. Even though I sometimes try to replicate a card, it never turns out the same. Either I haven’t got the same products anymore or I am having a different idea while I create it.
I normally do not offer mass production of cards, but I am happy to do so if requested. Of course the fun is to let my creativity flow and create something new every time. The price for my cards doesn’t actually cover the amount of time I spent on it, but its fun and I absolutely love it. My prices are set to cover the cost of materials and postage.
How it all started
I got hooked on the 20th July 2005, when I went for a card making class with my friend Jude. Ever since I have a great passion for creating cards.
At the beginning we just met for some card making sessions every now and then. Of course I bought some tools and materials and collected bits and pieces from daily items that could be used.
As time passed, my tools and materials increased as well as my passion. Since October 2009 I have a dedicated room for my hobby.
Mid 2010 I started the project “a card a day” and since then I have created a huge amount of greeting cards all waiting to be filled with words and posted to loved ones.
For 2 years friends told me to sell my handmade cards. Finally in early 2011 I have taken the time to set up an online store with all my available greeting cards. At the beginning of 2016 I did a major overhaul of my online store and switched to a different shop system.
Sneak peak into my craft room
I consider myself a crazy creative artist who just loves spending time creating something whenever I am home. When I am not home I work for a real estate company in the area sales administration and marketing or I might be out chasing a frisbee, catching up with friends or watch a movie.
Why Nuts On Shells?
You probably asking why Nuts on Shells, when I sell greeting cards?
My passion is also extending to shells. Next to collecting I also create art with shells. You can read more about it in my blog.
The main reason why I have used the name is, that I had this domain name for ages already and I love the name, so I thought why not use it.
