A friend asked me to make 2 graduation cards for her. School colors red and black. I outlined the hat with the sakura black glaze pen, and added black diamond stickles to the tassel and the top of the cap. one has red eyelets, the other has black. Dunno who makes that paper, but I got it at Mikes. I have no idea what to charge for them? Suggestions?

Oh, Trudee! I love these cards. I've never sold any of mine, so I have no idea what you should charge. I'd have to think they were worth at least $3 a piece, but since she's a friend I don't know. I'm so bad at that stuff. I give stuff away all the time. :)

I don't really stamp much. I'm just here for the company. :)

These are wonderful graduation cards!! You should get at least $3-$5 per card. Well, sigh, a whole lot more really, but it's hard to get paid for all your time. These really are wonderful, and I'm sure your friend will think so too!!

Trudee, these are gorgeous. I make cards for people all the time and never get what I want for them. I usually charge around the $3 range and feel pretty good about it. :) HTH!

I wouldn't charge anything for just 2 cards. If she is a regular customer of yours, then consider it as a thank you to her for her business....if she has never ordered anything from you, consider it getting your foot in the door with her to get her to your workshop.
More than 2 cards, I would definitely charge her for but if you would rather charge her for the 2, I usually sell my cards for $4.00. It might be on the cheap side but I always consider it as an advertisement advantage
