I thought that I would give my Etsy store another try. Originally, I tried to sign up with Merry in my username but it kept coming back telling this was already used. So I thought I will name it 'The Pyramid' which is virtually what I see out my window. This is a mountain that looks like a Pyramid. I didn't realise at the time that my username became my store name. I sold a couple of things which was great but I didn't really put any effort into reading up on what would help to get more people to look at my shop so visitors dropped as did my interest.
Anyways, I have been thinking about items to create and come up with a couple. Closed my original shop and now have an Etsy Store called 'Merry Made Creations'. Much more appropriate I think. Even had a lovely header and avatar made special for me. :-) So now I am trying to think of flat, lightweight items to create. Only because I live Australia and I found that the customers I did have all lived overseas and the postage is a killer when items are a funny shape or heavy.
So I have come up with these card pack called Standby Cards. I am creating four cards which have a silver medallion added to the front. I then include six greeting discs so that the purchaser can add their appropriate greeting as the card is needed. If nothing else I have had a fun time creating these. I love the bright and cheery colours.
I have used white pre-scored cards and either added various strips of papers or a variety of circles which I have cut with my Spellbinders. The silver medallions are silver jac paper added to a thing card and then cut out with my Scalloped Edged nesties. The greetings are wonderful Just Rite Stampers.
