Hi! My name is Karidy (a combination of the names Kari and Dee), and since early childhood, I've had a passion for art and creativity. I have a BA in graphic design from Western Washington University, and I feel so blessed to be a part of the minted community. When I'm not designing, you'll find me baking or decorating while hanging out with my husband and two beautiful little girls.

Hi Karidy, i checked out your work and love your style... I am not a real illustrator but try to be at times... (if you look at my roseheart save the date entry.. i took two photos of roses and traced them, put them together to form a heart of roses) but your stuff is beautiful! I favorited you as a designer. I can certainly learn from you! May I ask you - some of your typography is beautiful (like "Joy to the World" is that manipulation of an existing font or hand-drawn? or a mix of both? really beautiful work. Your work inspires me.
Thank you so very much for all your likes and your lovely comment on my valentine! It means a lot coming from such a talented Mintie. I love your work as well - best of luck :) :)
