Let it snow glitter! Karen Sapp and Papercraft Inspirations

One of Bright’s illustrations was recently featured in the newest issue of Papercraft Inspirations! Karen Sapp utilises her love of painting through a distinctive application of richly coloured acrylics. By doing this she brings her characters to life with texture and personality. Her characters have a great depth to them, which is a nice touch to the card industry!

From her hard work and talent, it’s no surprise that the magazine featured Karen’s adorable penguin characters in their magazine.  Her pieces have a very Christmassy feel, which helps readers in producing the perfect personalised snow-globe shaker cards for their loved ones.

There are five different designs illustrated by Karen, each featuring her cute and cuddly characters in tuxedos. As if they didn’t already scream Christmas, there is a free glitter gift with each purchase! The added bonus makes these homemade cards extra special. The fantastic double spread (found on page 6) gives readers a step-by-step guide on how to craft the cards.

We at Bright are now preparing to get our PVA glue out and begin making these cards ourselves! It’s fair to say Karen’s unique and charming illustrations will add a simple touch of Christmas to any mantelpiece.
