*Love * Encourage * Communicate
Hi, I’m Amy the designer, creator and photographer of all the greeting cards you see here!
I have always enjoyed crafting - this meant, growing up, my friends and family received various handmade goods or DIYs and occasionally, they still do. In the past, I have tried my hand quilting, beading, crocheting and list goes on and on….
I am a licensed educator and have worked with special needs children ages birth to three and until a few years ago I was also a Wilton Cake Decorating Instructor. My paper-crafting journey actually began with cake. As a cake decorating instructor, I worked in a local craft store and loved teaching how to create works of art on edible surfaces. When you work in a craft store you tend to expand your craft stash. My cake decorating supplies quickly were overtaken by paper, ink, punches, stencils, embossing supplies, watercolors, markers, colored pencils and the like.
My focus began with scrapbook pages. My goal was to arrange the photos, embellishments and journaling in pleasing configurations to convey a heartfelt story of treasured family memories. Over time, I had so many patterned paper scraps that I went looking for ways to use them. I simply could not throw out all that yummy paper goodness!
I went looking online and came across several websites for making handmade cards and the rest is history! I began making handmade cards just to mail to my friends and family. Over time, so many recipients of my cards encouraged me to sell them. For now, I'm a SAHM of three wonderful teenagers and I’ve decided to give it a go at selling my handmade greeting cards.
All my handmade greeting cards are personally designed by me. They are hand stamped and assembled.
I use high quality luxury card stock, paper and embellishments to insure every greeting card is not only a way to communicate the perfect sentiment but also can be a treasured keepsake.
I put 100% into what I create--I love to make greeting cards and other paper products and I want my customers to be happy with every purchase--please provide me with feedback on what you think of my creations. I am very selective about quality and use the highest quality products I can find.
In addition, my interactive card designs all have some movable element and part of the card design. Whether it is a special card fold, interactive embellishment or pop-up feature Burnish and Brayer Designs greeting cards will be the perfect way to send warmest wishes to your loved one, friend or acquaintance.
