I received this SUPER lovely handmade Official Postcrossing card (phew that’s a lot of adjectives) from the Netherlands! I was told that the sender’s mother made this especially for me after reading my love of manga-style cards on my profile. And it’s remarkable! It’s a bit tough to show but some of the features, such as the fan and the roses in the hair, are layered to give it a 3-D effect. This is why I love getting handmade cards – you can never fully expect what you’ll get. To me, handmade cards allow for senders to really pour in thoughtful effort to new degrees. As seen here! Thank you so much Ingrid and Tanja for this amazing treat!
