About

Unlike your normal run of the mill cards, all of Cards by Claire’s offerings are individually designed and handmade, so each one is slightly different.  Added to that, the cards can be tailored to suit individual tastes, so you can be sure of getting exactly what you want.  You like that blue one, but prefer it in pink? No problem… you like the design of that thank you card but need it for a birthday? That’s fine… You’ve got an embarrassing childhood name for a grandparent that can’t be found on any shop card? Just ask…  You need a card for a special anniversary but you have no idea what design would work best? Contact Claire and she will try to help…  Individual, bespoke, personal – that’s what Cards by Claire offers…

Claire discovered card making one rainy February afternoon at a workshop a friend had invited her to.  It was an instant love affair and Claire quickly realised that she was rarely happier than when up to her elbows in cardstock, ink, glue and glitter.  Over the next few months, Claire honed her skills and gradually  discovered what she liked and didn’t like to develop her own style and give her cards a personal touch.   Claire decided to make a go of selling her cards, and Cards by Claire was born.  After realising just how relaxing and enjoyable card making could be as a hobby  Claire decided to branch out a bit from simply making cards into helping others make them too, and so she signed up to be a Stampin Up demonstrator in Spring 2016.

When not crafting cardy delights, running workshops and holding classes, Claire lives happily in a little village just outside Winchester with her husband, Matt, and their 2 furbabies.  An ever ongoing battle with all things chocolatey, and too much giggling over pizza and cocktails with her chums means that spare moments are usually found at the gym or out walking in the local countryside, though a tv induced veg out is always welcome..  She also enjoys designing and sewing cross stitch projects but that’s another story…
