I was on a quest to make some ‘girly’ birthday cards lately and after seeing a sample I liked I made it my own and came up with this set of cards.
All of the cards have a tan card base and layers of brown, green and pink cardstock.
I used some scrap papers to add some pattern to the cards.
I added ribbons, pearls or rhinestones for a little extra pizzazz.
I colored with my chalk pencils and added a bit of shimmer spray to some of the images.
In an effort to use some of tags I made a few cards with sentiments on tags.
I used walnut ink on white flowers and ribbons to match the tone of the tag and cardstocks I used.
5 sheets tan cardstock $.20 each*
2 1/2 sheets brown cardstock $.20 each*
2 1/2 sheets green cardstock $.20 each*
2 1/2 sheets pink cardstock $.20 each*

Finished project: 10 cards

* I estimated the cardstock at $.20 a sheet although I think some was less than that. Generally I can find plain cardstock at $.20 a sheet or less.
I’m hoping to keep up my creative streak as my on hand stock has been dwindling. I’ll be mailing out over 100 cards this week from orders from my Etsy Store. I’m happy for the sales but seriously need to make more cards as I’ll be out of a some card types.
Here’s to hoping the creativity keeps flowing.
