    Default Wedding Card & Christening Card I made

    I was really lucky and got another order to make 1 personalised wedding card (client chose the colours) and two Christening Cards, one for a boy and one for a girl. (She had NO ideas for these and left it up to me (except not religious No comment LOL)

    I had to make one card for her to view and if she likes it then I make the second one.

    Well you know how awful my confidence is, and now I've done them I'm scared to give them to her LOL ~ So I thought I'd show them to you first. (I'm safe here! )

    Here they are:

    Talent girl, you have such talent. I absolutely adore the second one. Those little booties just finish it off.

    She'll love them!!

    You need some confidence in yourself. How could you think they're anything less than spectacular?

    You should create a portfolio of cards and teach classes.

    It's a wonderful thought ~ Really

    But if I haven't got the guts to show people the cards they actually ordered from me, I don't think I'd ever find the nerve to think I was good enough to 'teach' other people.

    I'd probably I'm such a loser sometimes LOL. It would be nice though if I could pull it off. What a great job!

    Even if you can't teach a class, you should still consider making a portfolio--so you can show people examples of the things you've done. If they've approached you for note cards but don't realize that you also do Christening cards, you could sell more just by showing them the portfolio.

    I think the portfolio is a fantastic idea! Plus it might help out with inspiration later down the road if you need it! Fantastic job. I love how you used the booties, very cute. I like the Wedding card too. I can't tell what is in the upper right hand corner of the card...is it a hole punch...heart shaped?? (My eyes have been acting up recently, cant see good. then i go and tear my last "good" contact, so I am a mess, lol, typing and viewing FV with my nose up to the screen)

    I agree on the portfolio. These cards are great! I just love the christening card. It's so pretty.

    Thank you for all your ideas and comments I really do appreciate them, it's so nice to be able to come here with something (anything) and be able to talk it through rather than just stressing at home alone.

    The portfolio idea IS a good one ~ How do you think I could do it? I have some photo's of cards, like the ones here but obviously I'm no photographer and they don't show the kind of detail the cards have in 'real life' ~ Do you think they would still be acceptable to use or should I think of something different?

    Thanks again for your support

    Oh sorry Melissa ~ The bit in the corner of the wedding card is a heart punched hole edged in gold

    I'm worrying because I'm thinking about taking them apart and starting again and making the cards with an insert which might look much nicer especailly as they will probably be kept for a while.

    Sorry another thought! I didn't see your post Sara as we were typing at the same time! It's funny I like the Christening Card much better than the other one too, but the other one is gold and orange Not colours I personally would have chosen maybe that's why LOL
