More cards from my Card Buffet...

I still have some of these to share...



supplies (all Stampin' Up!): Whisper White notecard; To You & Yours stamp set; cardstock (Kiwi Kiss, Kraft, Riding Hood Red); Chocolate Chip classic ink; Ticket Corner punch.

supplies (all Stampin' Up!): Whisper White notecard; cardstock (Pirouette Pink, Riding Hood Red); stamps (Eastern Blooms, Upsy Daisy); Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon; ink (Basic Grey, Riding Hood Red); 1 3/4" circle punch

and because Naomi asked, here's how my World Card Making Day card buffet worked: I prepped 10 different card styles (10 of each) that were fairly simple (basic stamping, not many layers) and assembled "kits" in various containers I had with all the inks, tools and products necessary to make each card. I typed out instructions for each card, and also included the sample in the kit. People came (I had two different days, and it was Open House style) and made as many cards as they wanted (and could make more than one of each style) for $1.50 CDN per card including the envelope. It was a lot of work, but I had a good turnout, and everyone enjoyed choosing the cards they wanted to make. I also have some prepped cards left over that I can use for future workshops.

I love those cards! Especially the cut out circle thing and the many layering on the first card!

Those are great cards! I always wondered how the buffet worked...how do you know how much materials to make? What if you don't make enough or make too much?! Thanks for explaining!

Cute cards. I love the second one the best because I like the red flower circle on it. A card buffet sounds like a lot of fun.

I never thought to make the branches long by stamping on on top of the other. Thanks for the great idea!
