I once got a special order to make five cards for the writers of a great womens bible study on the Psalms. All I had to go on was make it cute, pretty and maybe have a scripture on it.
Okay, sounds easy enough, right? Well, first I have to come up with a design; so I go through my card sketches to get some ideas.
I find a layout I like then dive into my paper stash. What do have? Do I have enough to make 5 cards?
Check out my embellishments. What will work with this design? Again, do I have enough?
Usually I do a sample card to figure out exact measurements for cutting and so forth.
Then I do all the cutting, distressing and stamping.
Finally assemble, put on finishing touches and get the envelopes! Voila, it's done!
I go through the same process with each special order I get to make sure your card creation is unique and special.
I just finished a set of cards for a customer last night.
This is what I came up with. Leave a comment if you like it!
I have a ton of cards I have done for store on Pinterest if you want to check out my "Cards for Stores" board.
