Stationery: Personalized Notecards!

I love creating new items! The ideas in my head are going crazy these days. Seriously, I find inspiration everywhere. It is excites me the most when someone inquires about a new product or theme that I haven't created yet! This morning I received an email from a friend of a friend, Heather, that she needs thank you cards ASAP to send to friends for birthday gifts she just received. These are the samples that I've come up with so far.

You may notice on these bottom two, I used my favorite paper by Amy Butler. This is from the same line of paper I used for all the Garden Party paper products in the magazine shoot!
What do you think, should I add these to MY SHOP?
PS. Mere - Hope you like these, yours will be in the mail soon! Hope you had a fab birthday! :)

They are lovely. You are very talented.

I adore beautiful cards, i think it says so much about people.

HI Kim! I love the personalized cards! (I'll just pretend they were for me!). One thing you could do is to make the front of the card just a little shorter (even adding a scalloped edge) by about 1/4", and add a colored strip along the inside of of the card, so the strip on the inside shows. It makes the card a little more three dimensional. See examples I've done at the website...I'm thinking especially of the "sparkly topiary notecards" under the stationery section as an example. And, yes, you should definitely offer these on your shop! Good luck!

Kelly - Thank you! Just checked out your beautiful blog!

Heather - Very cute! I just bought a scalloped edge punch, which would work perfect!

I love, love, love them! The bottom one is my favorite!

I'm a sucker for this type of stationary, though...I gave similar items out to my bridesmaids as gifts!
