Welcome to In A Nutshell! Handcrafted greeting cards for those with a sense of humor.

Several of our cards have been featured on Mashable, Huffington Post, Popsugar & Buzzfeed.

Marichiel Boudwin, wife and mom of 3 boys, started In A Nutshell Studio in 2012, mainly doing sketchnotes, illustrations and creative lettering.

- Illustrator of “It’s Not You It’s Me” by Mark Leruste

- Featured illustrations in “The Sketchnote Handbook” by Mike Rohde

While the studio still takes on commissioned typography and sketchnote work, Mar found that making greeting cards is her favorite artsy thing to do since it allows her creative freedom and she's able to be her sarcastic self. She's fascinated with letters and a Jiu-jitsu Blackbelt.

Professionally printed greeting cards are handdrawn/designed (unless otherwise noted), folded, packed and shipped by Marichiel in her homestudio in Valencia, California.

Almost all of the cards you see in my shop were originally made for someone I know and care about, so they are all made with love, thought, and effort. I sincerely thank you for stopping by and taking the time to peruse. Hope my cards bring you a smile or two!
