They are lovely. Having spent all that time making them how much would you be able to sell them for?

oh blimey, went away for a couple of hours and had loads of replies :D Thank you all for your comments.

Wendy, they're a bit fiddly, but they're not difficult to do, just a bit time consuming. I like them and they make a nice change from 'ordinary' cards.

Love your cards - they're really lovely. I've been looking at loads of handmade cards recently (don't really make them myself much, just for friends and family) but haven't seen anything quite as nice as these! Where did you get the idea from? Is it one you came up with? They're really fab - would definitely like to give them a go!:)

i love making hanbag cards they go down well with my friends just brought myself a small handbag template to make little ones to stick on fronts of cards. ive done one havent taken photos yet as daughters moved out with her camera and oldest daughter is buying me one for my birthday. your cards should go down well especially with the box and card with it.

You can buy templates and find them on the web too, but I'm a thrifty Scot and never spend money when I don't have to :mf:

I made my own template and just trial and error really.

have a google around, I'm sure you'll find some free templates - there's tons out there, but sometimes they take a bit of finding.........and then adapting lol.

I don't make em - want them ready made- havent got the patience to fiddle and dont have nimble fingers either. I certainly admire anyone who can produce beautiful cards.

They're lovely and with the box too makes it extra special, different to even a lined envelope. I bought mine ready made but now that I've got them I'm going to keep one aside as a template to then use whatever card I fancy. You can also get a butterfly shaped one, car, shoe, boot, glove etc...Oh cripes I really am going to have to sort my stuff out, I've got itchy fingers!! :D Thanks for showing them...
