Many Thanks, Etsy Item and Live Show Preview

Ok, there are lots of things going on in this post-to start I want to show you my card using this weeks color combo from Jeanette Lynton. At first I couldn't figure out how to make them come together, but all of a sudden it clicked! I did add a bamboo card base, but I think the colors really show up well even with the bamboo. Recently I found an online wholesale site to order some small brown and glassine sacks-I found a good connection through my day job, wink~wink!

So I created a special sack to slide the card down into. Ever since Convention I was really inspired by Katy and how she decorated the inside of all of her cards. I have really been putting an effort into the insides and the packaging as well.

These sacks are the perfect snug fit for a 5x7 card. I had to order 1000 of the brown and 1000 of the glassine, so I will be put some bundles of both for sale in my Etsy Store.
