Where are are you from and tell us a little about yourself?
I am from Denver Colorado. I grew up in Denver until I was 8 and spent the last 10 years in Florida. We finally had the chance to move back to Denver and we love it here especially being by family again. I am 18 and I will be a freshman in college starting in August. I am majoring in nursing because I wanted a job where I could be on my feet and experience new things everyday. The biggest thing in my life is tennis. I practice 4-6 days a week and participate in USTA tournaments. I am hoping to continue my tennis career in college and maybe try a few small pro tournaments. I am very easy going and I am a very hands on learner. I love pets, my family and I hope to one day backpack in Europe for a summer.
Why did you start your Etsy shop?
I have always loved scrap booking or making cards. I used to make a lot of cards and give them to friends for their birthdays or for occasions. Making cards gave me a way to occupy my time in a fun way besides just watching tv or going on the computer. The boost for me to sell these cards were, I really wanted to make extra money this summer for college. Every place I applied to for a job was already filled for summer jobs. (I filled out 25 applications) I decided I really wanted to sell something I love to make and to earn some money to save up to help pay for college.
How did you come up with your Etsy shop name?
When I decided to sell cards on Etsy I had discussed it with my dad since he is an entrepreneur and he had a lot of experience in the business. He told me to think of a list of names and check to see if the domain names were taken. I just sat there typing in any names that came to mind and made a list of any shops not taken. After the huge, ridiculous list of names we collectively decided on Sassy Style Cards because we thought it was what best described the type of cards I made as well as it was very attention seeking.
Apart from creating beautiful pieces, what else do you do?
As stated above, tennis takes a lot of my time up but I love competing and hitting a tennis ball. I enjoy anything outdoors, I am a huge food fanatic, and I love visiting my family a lot. Oh I can’t forget that reading is something amazing I also love doing.
Any other sites you can be found on?
Anything else you would like us to know?
All the cards I make are from my imagination. All my supplies are in cabinets, I pull out all the drawers and grab from random cabinets and put together what I think would look nice and have something unique about it. I take pride in what I do and I want you to receive a card that is made without cutting corners and that has been made with care. I am very big on being an individual and not going with trends or not having something that a lot of people have and I want these cards to be the same. I want to have sell cards no one makes and that are unique.

I received a card in the mail to review from Sassy Style Cards. I was thrilled to receive this beautiful card in the mail and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Completely handmade and perfect for the princess in your life! Made from thick cardstock and layered with quality cardstock to create a wonderful design. I lo
ve the use of feathers to add another element of design. This is a quality made card that would be something I would like to receive in the mail. It has many uses as it is blank inside.
Whenever I review cards I also take the time to mail them to somebody who I know wouldn’t mind reviewing them for me as well. I mailed this particular card to Emily as she is all about pink. She called right after receiving it and wondered where in the world I had found a card like this. She knows that I scrapbook but cards are far from something I will venture to. She is in love with this card and it will be going in her scrapbook. Not only because of the written message inside but she knows quality and style when she sees it. This is something she is proud to show off.
And who couldn’t use a little extra time by not filling out and mailing their invitations? I know this is an ability I could use and is something I would keep in mind for my next event.
