Just updated my Gift Certificate page with three new spring design custom gift cards. Each one features a detail image from my mini abstract acrylic paintings.
You can choose the amount you want to gift, choose your favorite card design and then either send it instantly via email, or choose the print your own option and download a high resolution pdf card that you can print, trim and write your own message on.
The printed cards trim and fold to baronial or invitation card size which is 5.5 inches wide by 4.25 inches in height and opens to 5.5 x 8.5 inches.

I was definitely inspired by Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year, Orchid, which is a blend of mauve-rose-purple-pinks. I knew I had a Vanda Orchid image with these very colors and so, one of the new spring bag designs features an actual Vanda Orchid image, complete with spring greenery in the background.
Since I’m very focused on creating designs and art that incorporate the ancient and powerful Flower of Life, this pattern is also included within the two new spring designs.
I’m testing a new marketing strategy and am limiting the production of the Vanda Orchid and Sensuous Orchid Black Flower of Life designs on Cross-Body Hipster bags to only 200 of each design. This may be a terrific incentive or a total flop, but I won’t know unless I put it out there. Let me know if you have any opinions on this by commenting on this post, by sharing on commenting via the Facebook or other social media links below, or via email to me at debra at debracortese dot com.

Welcome Spring…. please arrive soon!
I’ve wanted to create images combined with nature quotes for many months and today, I just completed the first one.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees” is an image of Oreo, one of my 5 rescue cats looking out over the Delaware River during the recent snow storm, Nika (NEE-ka), from Greek mythology; the goddess who personified winning or victory. To see all of the winter storm names and their meanings, click the linked type to open the list on the Weather Channel’s page.
This beautiful Nature Quote is from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll:
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
You can find more nature quotes online of course, but Goodreads.com has already compiled a terrific collection!
If you are interested in having a print of this new image, please visit my Etsy Shop here. If you would prefer a different size print, or perhaps a framed version, send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
I’m anxious to work on #02 now…
