Village Fayre Stamping

Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. I like long weekends. They're a bit of a treat. And nice :)
I managed to get some time in my garden in the sunshine. And some time crafting too. Village Fayre crafting. I usually make some cards for the local Church Fayre, and for Lelant Village Fayre - the little village where I live. But this year, I've also been asked to make some for one of the charity tents at The Royal Cornwall Show in June. Which is more than just a little bit exciting for me : ) So this weekend was the perfect opportunity for me to do the designing, and make my decisions about what I wanted to make. And these little Card Gift Sets are what I've decided to do. They will be my contributions for everyone this year : )

I'm ever so pleased with them. I had set myself a design brief...
- simple & very quick to make (I have little spare time)
- relatively low cost for supplies (I need a lot this year)
- styled & packaged to suit potential customers ('hand-crafted', country, rustic styling sells extremely well at local country fayres)

... and these tick all my boxes perfectly.

And I've used generic sentiments, which I hope will appeal to a wide range of fayre-goers in an effort to persuade as many of them as possible to purchase them : )

Plus, as a little bonus just for me, I've stamped them, which I don't do very often. I've used a combination of my free stamps from last year, and one of my favourite sets from Hero Arts.

Popped in a little cellophane bag, I think they might just do quite well. And I'm going to enjoy something a little bit different : )
