Two Heads Are Better Than One : )

Sympathy Card 001

“Two heads are better than one.”


Good Morning from Stamping Peace.   Yesterday I made six of these Sympathy Cards, designed by Mary Fish, for my first ever craft fair in December.  I need your help… should I offer them individually or in a package of two?  What should the price be?  I have no experience in this area!  Each card sports an antique brad on the sentiment banner and has a custom-made envelope to go with it.  It is a 5″ x 5″ card made with the “Simply Sketched” Hostess Stamp Set.  I used Soft Suede Paper and Ink, along with Coastal Cabana and Very Vanilla Paper.  The embossing is done with the Pretty Print Embossing Folder.

And what about our 2013 Stamping Peace Christmas Card?  It is another 5″ x 5″ card, studded with rhinestones.  What would be a fair price for this card?  Thanks so much for your help!


Our Stamping Peace card is made with the “Christmas Star” single stamp that is available until Jan. 31rst.  You won’t find it in the Annual Catalog or the Holiday Catalog but only on-line or from your demonstrator.  I used Midnight Muse ink and paper, and a whole lot of rhinestones!  It is a Brian King design.  When I stamped the star, it didn’t seem dark enough for me, so I went over the whole thing with a marker.  I folded the star on all the white lines so that it pops up.  It’s so beautiful!

Have a peaceful day,

  1. I would not price them too low, there is a lot of work that goes into making them, and they are one of a kind….maybe $5 each 2 for $8……When and where is the fair?

    • Hi Sue. Thanks for the advice. I need it! The fair is the second week-end in December at the Orrington School. I’m hoping to see a lot of our old friends from church…we had a lot of families from Orrington in the religious education program. I miss them!

  2. I have never participated in a craft fair but I’ve seen all kinds of prices from $2.50 each or 5 for $10 up to $8.00 apiece depending on how they were made and how they were embellished. Good luck with your first venture. Both of your cards are great and should sell.
