The Card Shark | Kathryn Ash
The Card Shark was first conceived in 2016 by Kathryn Ash. Originally from Essex in the UK, Kathryn decided to make Ireland her permanent home in 2015 after falling in love with Ballydehob and being blown away by the beauty of the West Cork countryside.
Have enjoyed card and paper crafts as a hobby fro a young age (whether it be card-making, paper mâché or decoupage), Kathryn rediscovered the joys of paper crafting and developed a range of fun new ideas after self-learning computer aided design and realising the endless possibilities it can create.
With an honours degree and professional background in ecology and agricultural biology, Kathryn's personal interests and hobbies centre largely around the outdoors and environment with a special love for plants and animals. These natural elements have understandably featured greatly in the design of her quirky and distinctive hand made cards and gifts. These are created with nature and environmental sustainability in mind, using both recycled papers and card; and new for 2019, compostable packaging.
Kathryn hopes there is something for everyone in her range of cards, no matter what the person, age or occasion; and. that the receiving of one of her cards or gifts brings as much joy to the recipient as it did in the design and creation of it.
