Default How many cards...

How many extra cards do you have on-hand that you've stamped ahead of time??? How many of those do you doubt you'll ever give away anyway?! lol

Wow! I've just been trying to get caught up with the mail so my supply is *really* low. Maybe 10??? I even sent some this morning that were made BSCS (before Splitcoast Stampers). They were definitely *not* top quality.

I have lots-- probably 25 or so, but they are from when I'd first started stamping, and now I don't feel they are nice enough to give away! I feel I need to make nicer ones, even for people who don't really care about hand-made stuff!

I have 50-60 or so on hand - but I make almost all my cards in multiples - seriously, the only time I don't make a minimum of 4-8 cards at a time is VSN. To me, the design element is the hardest part - the mass production is easy afterward. I try to keep a post-it on each card so I know who I've sent what to so I don't repeat a card on accident.

BTW, our large group storyteller at church just got done teaching Corrie ten Boom's book to our kids - what an amazing person and life! She could find the positive in all sorts of situations - and always giving glory back to God!

I mass produce as well. I have a photobox on hand (most are for this Christmas though). I also have some in another photobox that I will not be sending. I same those to use for scraps and tear apart later.

I never thought about mass producing till my mom was doing it. I was like 'd'oh! what a good idea!' I probably have about 40 on hand.

I make at least two of each card, sometimes 4 depending on if I like how it's going. I have a stockpile of about 30 cards right now. Not a whole lot, but it will do. If I need a quick gift I'll grab some, add envelopes and tie with a pretty bow and add a tag.

I have over 50. Most are older, ones that I'm not especially proud of so reluctant to send. Gotta thin them out.

I have over 200 cards that are good enough to send. I am waiting for my approval for the RAK forum so I can start RAKing and send them out.

I make mine as I go. I am getting ready to make some for all of our September birthdays. This way I know that I will like them and will actually send them out.

I do the same, make batches and then give a pkg as gifts. At Christmas I just go thru and pick a variety for each recipient. Don't ask me for any in January tho.
