So Glad We're Friends

Good Afternoon! I was busy today making a batch of STAMPED SIMPLICITY cards to sell at THIS OLDE HOUSE, here in Jasper, Indiana. I thought that maybe if I made some simple cards, keeping the price lower, that I will be able to get rid of some ribbon AND make some easy money!!

This is the first of a series of five that I will share over the next couple of days. I used this flower (in pumpkin pie) from the hostess set 'Vases in Vogue' from the last catalog. All of the cards are using the new sentiments from one of the new catalog's hostess sets 'Best Yet'. This one is stamped in Chocolate Chip.

Each card uses TWO stamp colors that coordinate with the ribbon. I just stamped the floral images all in a row, added a sentiment in the lower right, and wrapped with a bow on the left for balance. I was able to make between 2 to 8 cards of each style/sentiment depending on the amount of ribbon I had on hand. Don't adjust the color on your monitor. These are made on natural colored cardstock as I am down to about 15 WHITE pre-folded cards right now! I thought I had a whole other box of white! Well, if I do, it is hiding! SO, I pulled out the off-white and got to work!

Isn't this ribbon AWESOME?? I wish I had more than the 3'!! AND, I am re-thinking selling this one because I love the final result! So much for making money, right? HA!

Back with another in a bit!
