Simple Elegance is how I feel about this card. A little card for a big day! This very card has had the biggest (almost said hugest…LoL) impact in my card-making hobby/business. How? It all began with friends requesting I make them a very special one-of-a-kind (not anymore) card. Then someone else asked of I could make some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cards for their son’s birthday and that’s when I couldn’t keep up. Heck, I’m still catching up.
Although I already know that my card-making will never stop, I will always make time to make those sweet little kid birthday card requests. I know Etsy is a big deal now-a-days and everyone orders digitally created invitations then print them from home or a local box store. Well I researched it one step further and found out that YOU too can make your custom-made party themed invitations with Mini/Micky Mouse, Superman, Batman, or whoever you wish. To find a free theme invite simply search the name of the character and add PNG to the end of the search and you’ll get thousands of ideas. However, you do have to be a little computer/software savvy to get the party started.
I posted a few of my custom-made items on the local Facebook groups in my area and within a few hours I received more requests and orders that I didn’t step foot into my craft room the entire week! I thought to myself, “What was I thinking!” The answer was simple, I love to share my God Given talent with others!
MAGGIE MADE TIPS:
- White Space. I’ve written about white space before and besides loving it so much, there is something you should know when attempting to leave so much open space on a card. Layers! Yes, it’s all about the layers…the more the better because the variations in color make all the difference and pull the eye away from seeing all that white space. The eye doesn’t like clutter and the borderd layers gives the perception of nothing but elegance. Seriously, look at the card and what do you see? Husband…it doesn’t get any sweeter than.

Always Open. This week I had a conversation with a friend who expressed her desire for a discount on her paper-crafting supplies, but fear a committment or a penalty if she signed up just to receive constant reminders about making sales or holding workshops. I told her that my team is a non-hassle, non-committment, no sales requirement team. What does that mean? Read it here.
Thank you so much for cathing up with me…until tomorrow Stay Crafty My Friends.
