Which Are Your Favorite Cards?

Friday, December 28, 2012

I can’t help but feel a little burnt out now that Christmas is over. This year I made over 600 Christmas cards and lots of tags as well. However, my work as a seller doesn’t stop here—I already need to be thinking about what I’m going to sell for Valentine’s Day and I need to be getting ready for Wedding season as well. But, I don’t know why I feel stuck right now, like I’m in a haze—the best way I can describe what I’m feeling is: a creative burn out. I haven’t had a sale in about a week so that was enough time for me to take a break (even though I didn’t want to because I can never manage to stop creating) but I think I really needed it. During that small break I did cheat and spend an entire day coming up with new V-day cards for my shop. This year I’m going to be offering 3 x 3 cards with Kraft envelopes so I’m super-duper excited about that—I think sometimes I get intimidated by a full 4 x 6 inch space; and, working with a mini space is always so fun for me. I also thought it would be fun for me to get some feedback from you! I’ve created 6 mini cards and I’d very much like it if you told me which of them are you favorite. You can list them all in order from best to worst or just tell me if you like one or two—either way is fine by me. I just think it would be sweet if I could get feedback from someone else for a change. 
This week I went to Joanns to spend use some of my gift cards and I found this amazing flower wreath stamp. When I saw it sitting on the shelf I was a bit in shock at its beauty—but then I quickly grabbed it because it was the last one. I didn’t even care how much it was—cute stamps are worth any price to me. 
When I was at the store I also picked up this baby shower stamp set, it’s SO cute + I also got a happy birthday stamp set because I realized I don’t have very many of those and I’d like to start creating birthday card sets. 
Isn’t the wreath gorgeous? I colored the flower and leaves in using stamp markers and I stamped this lovely ‘I love you’ sentiment. I think it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. 
Here is a sample of a baby shower invitation I’m wokin’ on—it’s in the beginning stages. 
Lastly, I have these two birthday cards. I think they’re so dreamy and whimsical. Go ahead and let me know what you think in the comments, and let me know which of the mini cards shown above are your favorites too. I’d really love to hear from you! Take care and have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you for your feedback! It's funny cuz I really don't like that one but my sisters love it so I included it to find out how many people would love it too. Turns out it's a smash so I think I'm going to add that one to my shop for sure! :-D

    1. Thank you so much! I love number six a lot too. At first I was wondering if there was too much going on--but I think I really love it the way it is. :-p

  7. I love them all but if I had to pick I would say 1 and 4 are my favorites. I think I like 1 the best because isn't the typical v.d. card. Very funny!
