Love to all the small businesses, Purple Onion Designs
When creating this card I had all the small businesses in mind, and all they are going through during this time of the pandemic. Loss of sales when there was a stay at home order, investing money in the new practices that need to be happening for the safety of their staff and customers, re-inventing themselves, and more.
Most of my life I have worked for small businesses- so I know just how hard it can be. But I also am seeing something amazing! Creativity, heart, hard work, and determination!
This is a great time to remember to SHOP SMALL. Every purchase and every order means the world to a small business.
Using Stacey Yacula’s images from Purple Onion Designs I created this cute little main street. Coloring all the images with Copic markers. Stay tuned for my post soon for some tips on fussy cutting images (check out that mouses tail!).
I also used Lawn Fawn’s cloudy stencil for the sky.
Broke out a variety of colors of Stickles to embellish the card. You can see on the large heart, the awning, trees, sun, and clouds.
I sent this card to Tracie at Papercraft Clubhouse– but really this is a HUGE shout out to all the small businesses out there make it work, working hard. Wishing you much success!
its so sweet card!
Your card using P.O. stamps is a gorgeous nod to all those smaller businesses who are just about hanging on out there. During the pandemic I’ve made a point in trying where I can to support the smaller companies, they have been so grateful for orders. Here’s to remembering the little guys out there. Stay safe, happy & healthy x
Most of the small businesses that I have shopped during these trying times have been so gracious when you do purchase from them. My heart goes out to all of the small businesses that are trying to maintain. Thanks for posting this about this small business.
