Each ROCpaperscissors card design starts with a pencil sketch and color study. While I do use Martha Stewart craft punches to produce large quantities of specific shapes, I do not use die-cut machines to make any of the figures on any of these cards. Each card is individually hand crafted. The ROCpaperscissors name is derived from the initials of my name (i.e. Rosa O Clifford) and identifies the primary material the cards are made of (paper), as well as the principal instrument used to make them (scissors). The figures on each card are layered using a variety of techniques and adhesives in order to give them their three-dimensional appearance.
