Flaunt - Handmade Correspondences

Shannon Barnes owner and designerAbout Flaunt Cards

Growing up in a family where special occasions were marked with greeting cards (the best ones were from Grandma and Grandpa because they always had a dollar or two in them) and thank you notes were sent out weekly, it was foreseeable that hand held correspondences would evolve into a life-long passion for Shannon.

In 2001, after years of making cards for friends and family, Shannon was encouraged by many-a-girlfriend to test the waters of the retail market. And Wow! Flaunt Handmade Correspondences became a hit in Vancouver and quickly spread nation-wide, throughout the U. S. of A. and more recently in Europe. Shannon's intuitive use of colour, texture, and paper, has captured a niche in the greeting card industry in North America and internationally (what a great excuse to travel!).

Currently, Flaunt's success is due mainly to the fabulous bunch of artistically talented women who recreate Shannon's designs and bring each image to life.
