With finances a little tight this year I need to make as much as I can. One idea I had for a good friend is to make an all-occassion card set but would giving a set of 6 cards be "enough" ?? Our usual price range is about $10-15. What else would you put with it to round it out? I don't want it to look like I cheaped-out...

I know that I'd love to receive that as a gift. If you're feeling like you want to add a little something more, how about some stamps to round out the gift.

You could make it be 8 or 10 cards as well, or wrap it up really pretty and embellish with a nice ribbon with a nice writing pen on it, or some homemade goodies or a couple candy canes to make it festive. Sometimes it is all in the presentation that makes the gift feel special.

Thanks for the comments. I love the idea of adding a pen, some stamps and candy canes! Very true about how things are presented!

my sets vary

here's a Basic Grey set I made that had 2 of each card for a total of 6

a set from last year of black, red and white using Hero Arts HERE

and a clean and simple set using Hero Arts HERE

I just finished up a set that I have not posted for this year for gifts that has 8 cards and envelopes. I put them in those clear cello bags sold at Michaels in the candy section and put a holiday ribbon on it.
I may go back and add a candy to the outside too! Love the ideas I get here!
