Serenade tree birthday card

Hello, everyone!

I know it looks like all I am making lately is birthday cards, but my MIL was recently in town from England. When she comes to visit she always places a sizable card order with me for all of her friends and family in the UK. This time her order was larger than usual to the tune of 11 cards! The good thing is she pays me AND they serve double duty as posts on my blog. So, everybody wins ;-)



This card was made using Pink Paisley paper and the Serenade cricut cartridge(one of my most favorite cricut cartridge of all time!). The sentiment is Verve.

Have a wonderful week!

What a lovely card! I love the buttons, colors, ok, it's just all-round lovely.

I'm pining for this cart, but I'm practicing my patience skills lol.

How do you calculate the price of the cards you make? (not your specific prices, just how you do it if that makes sense).
