Kentucky Aunties Baby Card

My sincere apologies to greeting card designers everywhere, for whom I have the utmost respect. Also to paper crafts people. And people who have photo editing software on their travel computers, LOL. But hey, kudos to Auntie Me for some creative recycling! I was sitting in my bro's apartment realizing I forgot to get a gift card to go with the present I put together from Lilikoi's aunties in Kentucky. So I literally pulled the materials out of my bro's office trash to make this card.

I found a piece of cardboard that is white on one side, and folded it in half. I drew the aunties onto a white glossy gift back and cut them out. Yes they are real people (but not many earthlings get to see them in their wings).

I tore the leafy skirts from the cover of a discarded magazine. I picked up the angel wing seeds (aka helicopters) off the ground outside the apartment. Then it was just a matter of taping everything down with clear tape. Finally, I drew the feetsies and moon and stars.


  1. I love it, and the seed-wings are genius! I hope Lilikoi's (lovely name, by the way) family keeps the card for her to treasure later.


Thanks for your comment! It will be reviewed and posted ASAP.
