It'll be here soon

Valentine's day isn't that far off so I thought I would make a card for the occasion. I actually started out with a premade project in Cricut design space. I was all ready to cut it out and realized it was one that I had to purchase. Instead I decided to design something simple on my own.


So are you tired of seeing cards yet? I'm thinking that I want to build up my inventory of cards for this years craft show. The only thing is, I'm wondering, how big of a seller would cards be. I've offered them in the past and as long as the price was cheap they did sell. What occasions do you buy cards for? Or do you prefer to send online greetings?
My other thing is that if I do sell them I need to find more professional looking packaging. I had them in Ziploc bags before because it was all I had at the time. I had looked locally and no one sold anything like that.

  1. Your heart design is beautiful! I sure wouldn't mind Ziplocs, that tells you they are really homemade. I buy the boxes of crafty "homemade" cards at Costco. But WAY too many are new baby and wedding. I almost never use them. BUT the birthday cards, everyone uses a lot. I also like the blank ones, which you can send for almost any occasion and make up your own little verse. They are multi purpose, and you don't even have to have a reason to send one.

  2. I this site for inexpensive greeting card protectors. I like that design (not fond of the font - say that 3x fast LOL) I really like sending, and receiving cards via snail mail. Ecards - meh - not so much, I suppose they are better than not being remembered at all. But nothing beats a lovely (or funny) card in the mail.

  3. I don't buy cards but i never did, even before email and FB, now i just do the E thing. i know many who still buy cards though. baggies are fine to me. how about if you cut the top off the baggie and it will look like a sleeve..

  5. I recently bought general occasion cards at the craft show. And yes, price was a factor in deciding what cards to purchase. But, the locally made cards are much cheaper than, say, a Hallmark card...so that is why I have basically stopped buying cards. Oh wait...Mother's Day is another time I actually buy a card.

    I've bought cards in a cellophane package. Not sure where you get them, but I think the ziploc would be fine. Who cares? I think the cellophane just makes them look more fancy.

  6. I agree; for your method of selling, ziplocks are fine; they keep the price down. Very nice work!

  7. I buy a card for whatever I need one for. A birthday, sympathy, and the like. Now Christmas cards are another story. Those I buy.

    I'm not tired of seeing your cards.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  8. I love all your card creations and I buy cards when I need them. Of course price is a factor because when you think about it how many people actually save all the cards they receive? And then there is postage which has increased.

  9. Cards are a big seller at Shagway, and a lady brings them to writers' group and sells some almost every week. I never use snail mail if I can avoid it, personally. haha
