By now (unless you are new to my blog) you have seen or heard about my love of card making and all things crafty. After all, this is my 11th post about it and I tweet about it a lot #sorrynotsorry. Well my card making has taken on a new direction…note card sets.
I was watching YouTube videos, as I often do, and I came across a video that had these clear plastic card boxes in it. Being the crazy shopper I am, I immediately bought two packs to try them out and the ideas started flowing. And since I had two friends having/had birthdays the crafting of note card sets began.
The measuring of the cards and making of the envelopes was the hardest part really. I had a rough idea of the cards I wanted to make (a turtle one was a given since she has loved turtles for as long as I can remember). After that they all sort of took shape. Truth, the ‘You’re the Best’ card is my favorite and I woudl love to make a set of just those.
For this set I knew I wanted to make a library themed card since Megan is a librarian. I have some library pockets already stashed away so I was very happy when this print fit in with all the others. It actually is my favorite in the set, along with the coffee cup one (can you tell I love simple ones the best??).
After they were all finished I just packed them up and they were ready to go.
Since I had so much fun making Megan and Mary’s gifts I was inspired to make some more. Since I had already been playing with stamping and coloring (see the cupcake above) and I made one card that someone mentioned they would love a set of, I decided to try out a small set of cards for sale that was inspired by the stamp set below and the coloring I did.
I had 4 sets (I have 3 left for purchase). Each set has 4 cards with 4 envelopes in it. I stamped the inside of each with “Eat Sleep Read” and the back of the card with “The End”. If you are interested they are $8 a set and that includes shipping. First come, first serve kind of thing and US ONLY.
So, what do you think of my card making skills? Are you interested in maybe buying these?
*I plan to do full size (A2) cards for the holidays that will be available for purchase. I’m waiting for my supplies to come in. If you are interested you can hit me up on Twitter or over email.
