Cards for Denise

These are some cards that I've made for my daughter. She and her husband are opening a coffee shop in Enterprise, AL where they've recently moved. There is a real estate office in the building they are opening their coffee shop in. Denise wanted me to make some simple cards that the realtors might be interested in purchasing to give to their clients after purchasing a home. This first one is a simple house that I stamped on Confetti Cream cardstock from SU. I used Copic markers to color the door and trees. The sun is punched from a Martha Stewart scalloped punch.
Here's another simple design. The stamps are from AMuse.

The next four designs are the ones that I am making sets of 5 each for Denise to sell in the coffee shop. The base card and stamps are from AMuse. I used a Copic marker to outline the house with giving it a shadow effect.


This is the second card. I used an eyelet brad for the tree tire. Base card and stamps are A Muse.



This is the 3rd card. I stamped the roof of the house on white cardstock then traced it on the red madeira card stock. The base card and stamps are A Muse.




There are 3 different view of the fourth card. It is called a pocket card. This view shows the insert slightly pulled out. This particular design makes a really nice invitation. The ribbon tied around the top of the card is what is holding it together.





This view shows the two parts of the card.






Here is the card put together. We made one of these in an Asian card class at the Paper Garden earlier this year. I can make this particular card to suit whatever event an invitation is needed.
Price: $3.50

DENISE: GREAT LOOKING CARDS. I LIVE IN ENTERPRISE. WHERE IS YOUR DAUGHTERS COFFEE SHOP, I MIGHT HAVE TO STOP IN AND CHECK OUT THE CARDS. SENDING CARDS IS SUCH A PERSONAL TOUCH FOR REALTORS AND THEIR CLIENTS.

(suggestion-if your not doing it already-put your contact info. on the back of the cards)
