I have to stay on top of the seasons, or rather ahead of them, to keep my little business up. So I've designed Christmas cards for a card swap tomorrow with an upline group and for a stamp-a-stack I'm offering my customers on October 6, which is World Cardmaking Day (didn't you know?). The stamp-a-stack will be an opportunity for them to come and make as many of the same card as they want (there may be 2-3 designs to pick from) for only $1 each, with the paper pre-cut. This way, even though Christmas is still a ways away, I can get my customers thinking about what they are going to make and help them get ideas. Here is the card I've been working on (I made 12 for the swap tomorrow):

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Big on Christmas
Papers: Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Dashing Designer Series Paper
Inks: Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Yoyo Yellow
Accessories: Real Red grosgrain ribbon, blender pen, Stampin' Write markers.
Since I've got the stamp set now, all the supplies, and have designed the card, I'm considering adding a few more embellishments and mass-producing them not for myself, but to sell in sets of 10-12 to friends and neighbors. Per card the supplies come to about $1, but add in my time and adhesive (and of course expertise), what do you think would be a reasonable amount to charge per card?
