What’s better than sending a handmade card for the holidays?
Sending a handmade card with ink you made yourself, of course.
From Katherine Sharpe at Readymade: “Britt Browne’s materials are just as essential to her art as her designs. She makes her own ink using homegrown plants, then prints on handmade paper. Here, Britt shares the secret to making greeting-card-ready paper or fabric using the season’s most ubiquitous berry. Learn more about Britt and her work at The Paper Moon Project, and if you’re not in the mood to make your own cranberry dye, you can shop her limited-edition cranberry dyed cards at Soolip.”
