Card Suitcase

Howdy!  A BIG thank you to everyone who came out yesterday (and Friday) to the Tramway Community Church Arts & Craft Fair!  This festive and handmade event would not have been a success with YOU!  And a personal Thank You to my customers; new and returning!  It was a very enjoyable experience.  And wonderful to see everyone, and taking the opportunity to chat and say 'hello'.  {smile}
here is a photo of my booth:

I was very happy with how I displayed my products.  I did change it up a bit from last year.  So, it always feels good to make it 'fresh & new'.   One of the 'new' display items, was how I displayed some of my larger, more embellished cards.  I placed them in this sealed chipboard suitcase.  The outside of this chipboard suitcase, is this sweet mint green color, while the inside is a luscious pink color.  Right up my alley!

I wanted to decorate or at least jazz up the inside.  But, I didn't want to distract from my cards.  So, I looked through pattern papers I had on hand that were similar to this beautiful mint green color.  And viola!  Look what I found {smile}.  I printed my 'sign' on card stock weight vellum, by Stampin' Up!. I used a coordinating chipboard piece to anchor the bottom of the vellum to the pattern paper, and a chipboard heart to cover the adhesive at the top corner.  

Thank you for looking.  I have many more pieces to craft before my next craft fair - La Cueva High School, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Dec 5th (8a-5p) and Dec 6th (9a-4p).  If you are in town, stop-by!  You won't be disappointed.  My booth is B-34.  I'm in the B hall.  Hope to see you there!

Your booth looks beautiful! I'm glad you shared a picture. I love the vintage look and your shabby ribbon banner. I hope you did well!
