WORKING GIRLS

HAPPY MONDAY EVERYBODY :))
The girls at work have gotten wind of my card making addiction. I guess it was only a matter of time. I have already been asked to make 3 cards for various occasions. It's funny because I didn't realize how many people prefer hand made cards as opposed to store bought, and are willing to pay for them sight unseen!
This is the latest one I made for a new baby boy birth. I just love the baby bottle on the Doddle Charms cart, it never seems to get old for me when making baby cards. I've used it a lot! I started making larger cards at 5.5 x 8.5.  Basically the size of an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock folded in half and I found envelopes that fit them perfectly in my paper stash. They work great for cards that are from a large group since there is plenty of room for lots of people to sign them.

Pin It!

  2. Love It! I agree - hand made is the way to go. It just seems like more feeling goes into it or something. Have a Blessed Day!!
