Most of the beautiful things you see here at Cafe Cartolina are the works of talented artists and crafts people who put their heart and soul into their work. Even the vintage images you see here are treasures sourced by passionate collectors who are committed to restoring and preserving antique art for everyone to enjoy for years to come. Nothing at Cafe Cartolina is a free printable or a free download. You may not borrow, drag or right click any image for your art or craft because you will find that almost everything here is copyrighted material - this includes everything that falls under the Cartolina brand. You are welcome to reblog but please credit the original source. Thank you!
I was asked by the clever people at Blanket to design a dog tag as part of their Donation by Design program. If you don't know about Blanket, here's what they do: Blanket ID tags are for your pet. Their super pretty tags come with a unique ID number that you register on their website and if you pet is lost or stolen the Blanket ID system broadcasts emails to local SPCAs, shelters etc. When your pet is found the finder simply enters the unique number on the Blanket website and you are notified so that your pet can be returned safe and sound.
Blanket also has a huge charitable element to their organization and this is where I come in - I donated the vintage WOOF design on the tag and, every time one of my WOOF tags is purchased, $5 goes to the organization that I have chosen - which is BEAR AWARE! If you know me, you know how much I love the bears that wander past the studio windows every day in the summer. They’re incredible animals and I’m hoping through the sales of our WOOF tag at Blanket ID I can help protect them.
If you'd like to know more about Blanket please go to their site here and learn more - it's a great organization and really the ONLY WAY to protect your pets! http://www.blanketid.com/
Fiona Richards | Cartolina Cards . . . . I have never considered myself a trend follower. The only things I follow are my instincts. Collecting and creating have taught me to trust the art that moves me and question the fads that don't. This blog reflects the diverse design influences behind my work and all the things I love.
