BLENKO - IRIS FOLDED CARDS



There have been some questions in the blog comments lately about my
non-Blenko iris folded cards.  I have done heart-shaped valentines, celtic
cross, coffee cups, a virtual beer for a friend who was deployed in
Afghanistan (a dry country in more ways than one), and an anniversary card
for my husband that featured a wine glass.  The Blenko water bottle shape
was something I had made for me by a commercial die-maker.  The hearts I cut
with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die (they have multiple shapes in
graduated sizes) for use with various die cutting machines - I use a
Cuttlebug.  All the other shapes were purchased pre-cut, and there are many
other shapes available.

I sell these cards in my Etsy shop:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/therenaissancewoman   I haven't listed anything
recently due to a death in the family and work constraints, but if you are
really interested, send me a conversation via the shop.  One card is $10.
Five or more are $9 each.  Ten or more are $8 each.  One to two cards will
ship together by First Class mail for $2.00, three to five cards will ship
together by flat rate Priority Mail envelope for $4.90. More than six cards,
please contact for flat rate Priority Mail rate for shipping and insurance.

I hope that helps answer the questions.
