My mission is to help people celebrate friends, family and themselves with something unique, personal and affordable.
I've always made cards for friends and family as a way of giving occasions a special touch. In 2015 I started selling them to friends as a way of raising a little extra cash towards the cost of my Master's Degree. I'd always get great feedback, but at the time I lacked the resource (and the confidence!) to scale up my enterprise.
Then, in 2020, everything changed. I was a freelancer in the theatre industry and at the outbreak of covid-19 all of my work was cancelled, and I fell through the cracks of government support. But I still needed to pay my rent. And I also wanted to help people to feel connected in a time of isolation. That's when CressidaCards was born!
Everything you see on my website is hand-drawn by me. I offer a range of ready-to-buy digital cards and prints in my shop, as well as bespoke cards and posters, drawn either as a digital print or straight to paper.
I keep the quality high and my prices low, so that sending something special needn't cost the earth.
I can either post to you, or directly to your intended recipient and I'm happy to include a note too free of charge.
When I'm not drawing, I'm a dramatist, which is why so many of my designs are inspired by film, tv and the best of arts and culture.
