My latest crafty project idea hit me while I was driving one evening: Hand-painted stationery cards, inspired by henna designs. I love getting henna or “glitter tattoos” applied at some of our dance events, and I could easily picture making blank cards with henna designs.

The second evening, I imagined the cards embellished with bits of glitter.

Then I imagined the cards painted in other colors besides brown (the color of henna designs on the skin).

The glitter accents looked good on color, too.
|Only one card per set included glitter highlights|
All in all, I created four sets of four cards each, one for my Mom, my sister, and for each of my nieces.
|Two sets were painted in traditional henna colors|

These have all been given away as gifts. But I plan to offer similar sets of cards in the etsy store in 2013.
I hope you all had lovely holidays. See you in the new year.
