Quite a Challenge!






Just a quick post tonight as it is getting very late! This is my take on Ashley's Brainwave challenge. I struggled with this a bit.....I guess that is why it is called a CHALLENGE? I am a very basic card maker......just cut my sheet of cardstock in half and fold! So this unusual fold and belly band were tough for me. The paper is Daisy D's. The image is by Treehouse Stamps. I used my SU! punches and my white gel pen to add some faux stitching to the belly band. (There is some real stitching too!)
Head on over to Treehouse to see their new releases this week!
I am thinking of starting an Etsy shop.....any advice?

just get the shoppe already although you need to make sure what stamp sets you have that are angel companies first.
I like this card, perfectly simple.

This is such an incredible card. I love your details--and that paper, wowza! Your cards would do so wonderfully in an etsy store. They're so gorgeous and original! I've been thinking of getting a store up and running too, but have been stockpiling cards so I can open with a bang. ;0) I found this wonderful post by tartx that might be of use to you; it's an amazingly polished PDF tutorial on how to sell online:
