Oh, my gosh, those are amazing! Your mum is very talented! Some of the pictures are a little to close up so they were hard to see but I loved them all. I'm going to see if I can send this page to the card making group I am in. They would be impressed too. If she gets anything up, let us know! Has she tried Esty? I think that's how it's spelled. I want to try there.

the market for handmade items are very competitive, becuase you are basically selling your time for very cheap price. She can try sell them at local boutique/craft store for a fee to get the word out. She can include a little business card/information on the back of each item, that way if anyone wants to buy more, they can just contact it. It will also help going on Etsy, and start a website or blog with the items she got right now.

I used to sell my handmade items, but not anymore just becuase for the time I spent on them is totally not worth what I get out of it money wise.

I think Your mums cards are the most beautiful ones I have ever seen and if people want something nice and special they will pay for it. Its just a pity some people dont realise the work that is put into crafts hand made. I like to make crafts too , But the price for the materials is so expensive as well. Good luck with the web site.

Your mum's cards are beautiful and very nicely finished but I agree it can be very difficult to make any money out of handcrafted cards. My mum and I did a table top sale once with our handcrafted cards and I think we just about covered the cost of the table.

Good luck to your mum with her venture.

Jules
