The joys of card making

A friend of mine heads up a non profit foundation in our state. The group likes to send out thank you cards to the donors a couple of times a year and she has asked me to make them. Because it is non profit I am willing to make them, generally I only make cards for myself, friends and family.

Because she wanted 225 cards in a few weeks she agreed to keep the design simple. I sent her several designs but apparently her group had a “pintrest” idea in their heads and that is what they wanted. OMG…it could barely get worse…225 cards, 5400 pieces.   img_5344-min img_5345-min img_5351-min img_5354-min img_5355-min They loved the finished product.

img_5361-min img_5362 I am surprised I didn’t have nightmares ,it took me about 20 hours to complete the 225 cards.   :~(      Parts of this were a purchased file or I would share…stay tune next week and I will have files to share.
