Lavender Loves Tiny Bee Cards! & Giveaway


I love Tiny Bee Cards. It's such a funky shop and the cards are really great.


I like the bright colors and the fun texts, especially the puns are fabulous and I admire the playfulness with words.


There are cards for every occasion and if you purchase from this shop you have something unique and different to send.


I like the simple and cute drawings and actually found Tiny Bee Cards while looking for something kawaii.


I've asked the owner of the shop, Alexis, a few questions, so you can find out more about her and her fabulous cards.

How do you make these cards?

I create the illustrations with Adobe Illustrator, and I try to simplify a concept down to its most basic shapes. It’s similar to the process of logo design, and as a graphic designer this process is a fun puzzle for me.


 What inspires you?

I love making greeting cards because I love that they’re making someone smile somewhere. Getting a special card is such a delight, so I'm so happy if I can create that for others! I create cards especially for the chance to brighten someone's day.
Another thing that inspires me is the English language. A lot of my cards and prints are based on puns, so throughout the day naturally I read and hear a lot of words, so that often inspires a new card. Plus, ever since I’ve started my shop, people are often coming up with cool ideas and suggesting them to me, which is fun for me.
I also love animals so they are constantly inspiring new card ideas as well, and they are fun to draw.


How did your Etsy adventure start?

 I started TinyBeeCards almost a year ago, and it started with one card that I designed to give to my husband on Valentine's day. It was the ‘significant otter’ one. He loved it, and he suggested that I start an Etsy shop just for cards in a similar style. So I did! 


What are your plans for the future?
 
I plan to keep creating, experimenting, and working on my shop. It’s so rewarding and I feel so lucky being able to draw things all day, so I plan to keep it up. 


Is there a fun fact you could share with my readers?

I couldn’t do it without the help of my two cats, who provide constant support, quality control, and some constructive criticism.


Alexis also makes beautiful art, you can find it here.


I like the idea of putting a smile on someone's face which is why I find these cards so attractive.


Alexis has a beautiful website where you can find out more information about her and her designs.


Besides postcards you can also find a few adorable magnets in the shop.


One lucky reader of my blog will receive a wonderful prize.


Alexis will send three postcards of choice to the person who wins this giveaway. Good luck!


I will contact the winner on twitter or via email. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international.   
Please don't cheat. For every prize that's being offered to you someone has worked very hard. I won't send prizes to people who are not playing fair.
It can take a long time for mail to arrive in the Middle East, some parts of Australia and South America. I will ship to every country, but I can't make the mail go any faster.
