With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about presents for your nearest and dearest, and we all know there is nothing better than a handmade gift. Nicole Figueroa is the talented crafter behind THE LAND OF FIG and she’s kindly offered to help you all out by sharing the secret to how she makes her beautiful, hand-stiched cards. Christmas sorted.
Nicole – a graphic designer – is inspired by her own daydreams and doodles. As well as cards she makes art prints, pillowcases and all sorts of other cool things. Everything has a focus on the handmade and features gorgeous little designs and colour combinations.
Nicole has kindly helped us all out by showing me how she makes one of her beautiful cards. Now you can do it too! Of course, if you’re like mem and fairly hopeless at all of this crafty stuff, you can opt to buy one of Nicole’s beautiful cards instead. She’s Sydney based and her quirky little gifts are stocked at a few places around town so head to her website to find out where and see just how gorgeous her work really is.
