With this kit, you can make these adorable kids' tag style invitations for a fraction of the cost of ordering from a stationery store! For only $1.75 per invitation, you can have handmade quality invitations for your child's party!
I've made it easy by doing the shopping of materials, designing, printing and cutting the card stock for you. These invitations are loaded with details from scalloped edges, die cut tags and circles, dimensional embellishments and ribbon. No special die cutters or tools are necessary, all you need is adhesives such as glue or double stick tape and pop dots if you desire.
Log onto http://www.cardblanc.etsy.com/ to see the first two styles I've created. And while I'm introducing this new product line, I'm including a free invitation with your purchase of a kit!

A lot of people I know don't craft because they don't think they have the time. If you're one of those, check out these two cards I created. They were super simple and so much fun to make! I didn't need to drag out the sewing machine, make my own embellishments or tie fancy bows. The trick? Dimensional stickers! All you need is some craft paper and an adorable 3D sticker or two and you're set! I sell the butterfly stickers in my Etsy shop at http://www.cardblanc.etsy.com/ but if you're still not convinced that you have the time to craft, the little giraffe card is also for sale.

I'm getting an early start on my Christmas cards and ornaments and thought I'd share and hopefully inspire you to get started too. Each year I make a handmade card and ornament for our friends and family members and I make a lot of goodies for my Etsy shop too. It may seem a little difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas when the temps outside are sky rocketing, but put on a holiday CD and you'll find yourself singing along and crafting away in no time!
