There are some techniques I have just learned to fall in love with.  Heat embossing and water color resisting is one of them.

I love the resulting look of this technique so much that I decided to create a card set around it.

That’s how the Birthday Stars Card Set was born.

UntitledBirthday cards!  Everyone needs birthday cards, right?

UntitledThere are people born everyday, hence, a birthday is celebrated everyday!  What better way to be prepared by having a card set of birthday cards on hand?!

UntitledDon’t be caught without a birthday card on someone’s birthday.  By owning this card set, you won’t have to drive out to the closest store to buy a birthday card at the last minute.

Every card is handmade.  That means that the card set you receive may not look exactly like you see in the photos.  But that’s the beauty of handmade.  Give the gift of a one of a kind, handmade birthday card to someone special.

This card set is $20 + $6.50 shipping. These cards are made to order.  Please allow approximately 1 week after receipt of payment for the card to be shipped out to you.

Please visit the Etsy listing here for more information.

Last week, I introduced you to my very first card set for sale.  You can see the card set by clicking here.

My goal is to reveal one new card set a week.  I’m hoping to start adding them into my Etsy store, but I’m waiting until I get about 5 card sets before I do so.

This week, I’d like to show you the “Hello” Card Set.

Haven’t you ever found yourself in need of a card and no time to go to the store?

If you purchase my card sets, you will always have a card on hand for those “just in case” moments!  This cards are perfect because they are no specified for just one type of occasion.  With a stamped “hello” sentiment, you can use these cards for a birthday, a thank you, or just a ‘thinking of you’ moment!

I had a lot of fun making these cards because they were using one of my favorite color combinations.  Red, black and white.  I always find myself super inspired when I make cards in these colors.

UntitledEach card set revealed costs only $20 plus $5 shipping.  Please allow 1-2 weeks AFTER receipt of payment before I ship them out since I have to make them to order.  Like all things handmade, the finished product may not be exactly the same as what is shown in the picture, but it’s definitely made with the same love and care as the ones in the photo.  That’s the beauty of handmade, right?

Every year I tell myself that I want to sell Christmas cards.  Every year I tell myself I want to create card sets.

Every year I find myself so very behind on Christmas card production.

Not this year.

This year, I started early.

Christmas in July.

The goal is to have enough cards for the following:
1. Personal use
2. Sell via Etsy or Instagram
3. Sell at the flower shop
4. Sell to select family members that have been asking me for cards for their own use (ie. My mom).

Production isn’t going as quickly as I would like it to go.  For each card design, I make four at a time.  Some cards take longer than one night to create because I use watercolors and need them to dry.  Finding time to create the cards is difficult too.  I try to make the most of my kid’s relatively early bedtime, but I also don’t want to find myself awake at 3am cardmaking…

But I’m pushing through.  I think I’m going to make a decent amount.  I’m determined.  I will make this happen this year.

Here are some of the card designs that I have completed so far…

I’m hoping to have enough cards by mid-November so I can get them up on Etsy and my shop Instagram account for people to start browsing.
