I have a brilliant beyond brilliant idea (Parent Trap anyone?). Actually, my friend Luann had a brilliant beyond brilliant idea. A few weeks ago she said to me, “you should sell every card you make.” I’m not sure if this is what she meant or not, but what I interpretted that to mean was that for every card that I make, I should make a second version of that card to sell.
What a perfect idea. Cards take a decent amount of time to design, but once you design them, making them is simple. Not only that, but I spend so long designing cards and it’s a shame that I have to let go of the design so quickly. So I’ve decided to give this a shot. For every card I make, I will make a second one. My goal is to sell each one in my new Etsy shop venture (which I hope to be opening officially this month). I’ve got 16 cards ready to go already.
I wanted to share a few cards that I’ve made with you recently in the meantime while I’m still pulling all of my ideas together.
Zoha’s Going Away Card
favorite part: All of the bright colors
most complicated part: Cutting out those letters with an exacto knife, especially the inside of the ‘o’ and the ‘a’
favorite part: The simplicity of the card
most complicated part: Getting a wide enough range of shades of color
What a crazy idea for a new venture, right? I’m excited. Let’s do this.
