Notecards II

Yikes... it's been a month since I've posted! I've been busy with a couple of projects that I'll share with you shortly, but in the meantime, I thought I'd show you a set of cards that I put together for a friend's birthday. (Apologies for the uneven lighting in this shot; I was rushing around, as usual. But not a bad shot for an iPhone...) I made a different set a while back (you can see that post, with details about the supplies that I used, here). However, instead of spray mount, I used a wonderful little Tombow adhesive this easy! And for this set, I used Paper Source's "Cement" for the A7 notecards and envelopes and "Lake" for the box.

Here's the label that is on the box bottom...I completely forgot to photograph the finished box from the top, but it also had a vellum band like the first set. This time I used one of the flowers from the "Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow" card as the sticker.

I keep thinking that I might someday get organized enough to put cards and prints in an Etsy shop, but I'm not sure that it'd be worth the time and effort. I'd love to hear from those of you that are Etsy sellers...has your experience been positive?


  1. Yes! Put any and all in an Etsy shop, please :)
    I, too, should do I'm afraid I can't give advice, but I DO think your items would sell like hotcakes, Sarah!

  2. Beautiful cards. You have a lucky friend. I haven't been doing Etsy, so I can't advise, but good luck with them!

  3. Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be organized. You are accomplishing a lot of lovely drawings and that's what's most important in my book. Please stop by and check out my blog

  4. What a neat idea and thoughtful gift! Your art lends itself so perfectly to this sort of thing. The set is lovely!

  5. Beautiful collections of images for a box of cards. You really pull things together in such a nice way. I think these would be great cards to offer for sale!!
