What do you get when you purchase a handmade card?

Just in case anyone was wondering what to expect when you purchase a handmande card from me, besides the tutorial for one of my boxes as a bonus, and the sketch for the card I make for you, oh and of course the envelope to go with the card...?

Here's a couple of cards I made this morning for a couple of gals so that you can see them as examples.  :)

One person wanted a birthday card made mostly out of Stampin' Up supplies.  I don't have a tonne of SU stuff, but I do have some.  This is what she's getting in the mail from me...  yup another of those FUNky flowers!  lol

And another person wanted a birthday card made out of mostly CTMH supplies.  Although it may look a little like blue in the photo, the lighter purple shade is called Amethyst (like a shade of lilac).

So hopefully that gives you an idea of what type of card you'd get from me if you purchased a handmade card.  You can also look under Labels in my sidebar for Purchased cards to see the other ones I've posted here on my blog.  I don't post every card, as sometime time doesn't allow that, but the majority of them are on there.  ;)

A lot of time, they are one-of-a-kind cards, and less often I make a few the same, at the same time.

And be sure to check out my box templates that you can get as a bonus with purchase.  You can see them under Labels on my sidebar, listed under Vicki's Templates.

If you do ever decide to purchase a card so you can get one of my bonus templates, I will keep the info at the top of my sidebar for easy finding, which will also direct you to Paypal.  :)

Happy creating!
