Inside Verse: God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love on St. Patrick's Day and always.
Before you start selling your handmade cards take a little time to plan. You need a business plan.

In an interview in August 2013, CEO Chad Dickerson emphasized the importance of human interaction and meaning from creativity in regard to his perspective on Etsy. Dickerson described the website as "a platform that provides meaning to people, and an opportunity to validate their art, their craft", and after spending time with Etsy users, Dickerson learned that "all commerce is about real human interaction". Dickerson also provided a summation of Etsy that is a further reflection of the company's relationship- and meaning-based ethos: "At the end of every transaction, you get something real from a real person. There is an existential satisfaction to that."

Social media is a great place to get the word out about your handmade cards. Whether it's Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, or another outlet, you have a tremendous opportunity to reach a wide group of people the world over. Look for Facebook sales groups, which are groups that allow selling to members. Some groups do not allow selling and you will risk coming over as spammy if you post in these groups without permission. Do a search on Facebook for Etsy groups. There are plenty to choose from. Instagram can also be a great place to show your work, just make sure that the link in your profile is to your store.
One of our favorite games to play, giddy in our seats, while awaiting a bride’s first steps down the aisle is “guess the veil.” And if last year was all about glittery, jazzed-up versions that can affectionately be described as “extra,” this year brides are switching things up yet again, often opting to forgo veils entirely. “Brides are turning traditionalism on its head—literally—and rethinking the classic veil with showstopping modern alternatives,” says Dayna. From bridal hats to feathered headpieces, there’s a fresh head-topper for every bridal style.
