SKYHI CARDS is about creating unique "One of a Kind" greeting cards. Each card is hand made & different from all other cards. To Give or Gift.

Tell us about your business.

Several moves of various packed boxes labeled "Craft" finally came out of hiding from a dark closet. As each box was opened, creative thoughts began to jam up my brain. Still I waited since the potential craft room first became a guest bedroom, a 2nd & finally a 3rd grade classroom. At last a new bright coat of turquoise paint, black accent shelving, clear plastic bins & a folding table enabled me to have a true craft room. Now to unpack those talking boxes. I love anything unique, unusual, & handcrafted! I had so many ideas tucked into my brain where would I start? I decided to concentrate on creating original one of a kind cards. Thus began SKYHI CARDS with my first creations in 2006. I make all my cards using various medium from craft & thrift stores. I will usually make a set of 6, 8, or 10 cards of a similar theme at one sitting. A goal is to consign in more shops, sell online & teach card classes so others may enjoy the thrill of creating unique cards.

What makes your business stand out?

My SKYHI CARDS are all individual creations. Some may be similar when I make sets of cards, however every card in a set is still different. SKYHI CARDS are made of quality & often unusual materials picked up at thrift stores. They are inexpensive, less than $5. Most from $2 - $4. All cards are made personally by me to a high standard & are unique "One of a Kind" creations. No card is identical to another. Every card I make is photographed, labeled, and sealed in clear cello wrap with an envelope, keeping them in pristine condition. They can be given as a card or as a gift. Almost all of the SKYHI CARDS are left blank inside for personal greetings & sentiments. Room for a few simple words or even a longer greeting. Even those cards with special greetings inside usually have room for a personal greeting. Presently I consign my cards in stores & sell them at occasional Craft Fairs. I also sell them out right & plan to create a another website to help sell my cards.
