Papertake Weekly

Hey everyone.
I've been working really hard on this card for the last two days, as it's for my best friend. I knew once i saw the fab sketch at Papertake Weekly by Dawny P that i had to join in. I think my gorgeous Miss Anyas from Bunny-Zoes Crafts work great with these yummy MME papers so paired those up.

The roses, pins and big pearls are all from Hobby Craft, and the gorgeous ribbon is some Smirk that i got at a great price from my local Craft Shop: 50p for 5 metres!! I watercoloured the image with my trusty whispers. { Don't think i'll ever change, i don't like Promarkers as the nibs are too thick, and copics are way to expensive!! It would probably take me a year to save my pocket money for just one set lol. }

If i was selling this card, i'd probably price it up at 1.70... i'd love to hear how much you charge for your cards, or if you sell them!

  5. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Fern, love everything about this card its amazingly pretty! I'd ask for more money for your cards hun, I charge between £3 & £4.50 for a square card, this card is definitely worth more than £1.70! :) Donna x

  6. Fern you stick to your whispers love as this colouring on this card is superb. I don't like promarkers neither, I gave all mine to my son Scott. This card is so pretty I definately think it's worth more.

    Have some fab news, I finally take over the shop next wed 23rd, so will be closed for a couple of days then will have an open day on the Sat, hope you got me some more samples made lol!!!!

  12. Oh wow Fern, this is a beauty. You get better and better every time I come, this is just beautiful! The rose is really pretty and brilliant colouring! :)

  13. This is lovely Fern, gorgeous colours. Your friend is gonna love it. I love my PMs but the thick nibs do take some getting used to. You stock to what you like, we're all different. I sell my cards for £1.40, A5 cards £2.50. I couldn't charge more. I don't think people at work would pay it. They don't always appreciate how much work goes into them nor how much stuff costs. It's hard to put a price on perfection isn't it, lol. Marianne x

  14. Oh Fern this card is beautiful and I'm sure that you could sell it for more than £1.70. I suppose it depends who you are selling it to and how you are selling it. BTW Thanks for linking to my candy, good luck in the draw. Kim

  20. what a gorgeous card and beautifully coloured - I sell my cards at £2.50 each - if you think about it when you go to tesco for a nice card people pay £3.50 - £4.00 so even £2.50 is cheap.
