When Yvonne returned home to Southern California, she taught herself to use a laser etcher. After a round of crowdfunding—and quitting her day job—Cardtorial was born.
The cards are made in Yvonne’s L.A. studio with alder wood that is sustainably harvested here in the U.S. Greetings, well wishes, and heartfelt sentiments are cut into the wood, which can be personalized with a fine tip permanent marker.
Yvonne keeps the finish simple to balance the wood’s light color and natural grain with her carefully etched designs. The finished result is a décor-worthy keepsake that can be popped in the mail or presented in person. Either way, it is sure to be treasured for years.
