Carole Monterosso creates greeting cards and decorative pictures with vintage flare. She offers her works cased in double matting, wooden frames, or both. Each piece contains a quote personally created or chosen by Monterosso. She collected all the quotes over the years.

“I was inspired to make these pictures to help females keep a positive mental outlook as well as a spiritual side. I chose these quotes, because to me they stood for female empowerment and spirituality. I used card stock, feathers, beading, and lace. The materials represented femininity to me and I really wanted that to show immediately in the work.”

Quotes include:

“A woman is like a tea bag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.”-Elanor Roosevelt

“Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.”- Lauren Bacal

“One is not born a woman, one becomes a woman.”- Simone de Beauvoir

Her works have been featured at craft shows around Southern NJ. Cards cost $2.50 each and decorative works range from $10 to $25. To purchase contact her via email at

Each hand crafted card will show you care more than running to the local drug store for a card.
