Yes, that’s Necessity. And in this case, necessity demanded a card for a friend’s daughter who had just given birth to a lovely little boy. I hadn’t found a card I liked, so was driven to make my own.
It was quite a straightforward process, and enjoyable, because I had all the materials to hand – some colourful leftover watercoloured paper from another project, and a printed sheet ‘repurposed’ from a paper plane kit. A quick scout for image inspiration, and I was off. After some careful scissor work, a bit of gluing and a little fine detail in pen, the job was done.
