Leaf Note Cards

Hello!  I just have a quick project share with you today.  I have been trying to make some notecards to donate to my daughter’s school for their annual fund raiser.   This is the first of 3 sets that I have completed. 

Here is a look at one of the cards in the set.  I didn’t include photos of each card because they are all pretty similar.

Here is a look at the entire set.   The photo is a little warm.  The coloring in the photo above is more accurate.  Each is lined with Papertrey Rustic Cream cardstock.

So what do you think?  Do you think asking for a minimum bid of $5 for 6 notecards and envelopes is too high?  I’m not sure what to put on them. 

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

I definitely don't think that your asking price is too high - I'm sure these are worth much more.

These turned out really pretty. I like the reversed punch.

I think your price is totally fair, if not on the lower side.

Good luck!

I don't think that is too high a price for such beautiful cards. You never know what people will pay though. Where I live people seem to think auction means really cheap and they just won't bid unless it's below value.
Chana said…
Absolutely Stunning CAS Design! I think your cards will do well at the auction! Fantastic work! Your project is CAS at it's most powerful! Thanks for playing in the CAS challenge this week at Jackson's Digital Expressions!

I love these, really elegant! Thanks for joining us at Use it Tuesday!
Marianne said…
These are just gorgeous Cheryl. I think $5 for the set is an absolute bargain but I guess it's a good starting price. I'm sure people will jump at a chance to buy these.
Thrifty Finn said…
I agree with Marianne. 5 dollars is way too cheap but as a starting price it's okay. You have to think how much one of these cards would cost in a store.
Julia said…

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
