Why so expensive?

 

OK….I have started making cards…yes, actually making them!  I would like to find some dies and stamps for Christmas, as I have so few cards to send I thought I would make them…

I adore this card!

So I thought I would see what the materials cost and I was shocked!

Just to make this one card…

16.00

  This stamp is 16.00

22.00

This die set is 22.00

6.00

This one word is 6.00

7.70

And this one stamp is 7.00

Now if you add that up, it comes to $51.00 to make this card!!!!!

Even if I made 100 of these, I still could buy store bought cards much cheaper!  I just wish that because something is popular, it didn’t have to cost an arm and a leg!

I would have loved to do this, but I don’t know about you, but I sure can’t pay $51.00 for this set up…:(

 

I am not saying that these companies are anymore expensive than the rest, but why is it ALL so expensive?  I feel the companies are taking advantage…

OK…off my soap box….
