Several months ago I started a range of mini-cards - they had dual purposes: gift cards (with envelopes) or mini greetings cards. These have sold really well and this, I am sure, is due to a single price of 60p or 5 for £2.50 - everyone loves a bargain. I added to the range with Christmas themed cards and these have also proved to be very popular.
Less than four weeks to Christmas which means not many Handmade Mondays left either. I completed an order over the weekend for a birthday card for a rugby loving penguin fan. I was going to post a pic on this blog, but the recipient is a possible blog-viewer and as his birthday isn't until later in the week, thought it best not to. Instead I am including a picture of a butterfly-themed card I made during the week. I love butterflies in crafting and think they add a gorgeous look to cards. This is a stepped card and I have used butterfly-flower themed background paper and added silver/glitter decoupaged butterflies as well as butterflies cup form paper I had in stock. Don't forget to check out the other Handmade Monday bloggers - gorgeous makes that you really must see, and of course read the great blog posts.
I am having a bit of a restful day today - I have two card orders to make up and will spend some time making final items for this weekend's event.
Have a good week everyone - I will be back on Wednesday with my mid-week post.
