**Warning: Profanity is used in this post**
I finished another piece in my “Snail Mail” series. It is another birthday card, as someone close to me had a birthday this weekend. Not all of my snail mail will be for birthdays, or even for special occasions. The person that I created this for was not particularly excited about their birthday, so this design seemed fitting.
The base of the card was once again, (like the last card I made for my Grandpa) made out of junk mail cut up and glued together. I really enjoy the tactile feel of the layers of paper, as well as the hint of “homemade” style it gives it. To me it is a way of expressing thoughtfulness. The time I spent making this card was time I spent thinking about this person. I’m not usually a huge fan of profanity, but I wasn’t so sure that this is even considered offensive, and, well it seemed fitting. My apologies if anyone is offended. I really enjoy a little snarkiness.
