More CAS cards! I am on a roll!!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!
So glad the weekend is upon us!
I have a couple of craft events coming up towards the end of the year and have been working on batches of A2 cards that will mail with a standard stamp and can sell for very reasonable prices. When I first started card making 2 years ago, I bought tons of paper pads form "Hot Off The Press". Then I discovered thicker designer papers form other companies. The HOTP paper pads got stuck in a file drawer where they lay undisturbed until this morning. I use the heaviest and highest quality cardstock I can find for my card bases, but wanted to keep the cards light, so I remembered the thin pads in the drawers. I had forgotten about all of the pretty designs they were packed with! I can use these papers for my "mail friendly" cards that I will be selling at shows!
These clean and simple cards were all done with just (2) 9"by 7 1/2" sheets of DP. They do have multiple layers of the white cardstock because I don't like the stitching to show on the inside or back and I like to tuck my ribbon in.
The pretty little flower and sentiment stamps are from the "Every Day Jar-gone" set from Clear Dollar Stamps. I just love this set! It is soooo versatile!



Here they are all packaged up and ready for the shows.

these are beautiful! I can not imagine getting into stitching on my card, but this makes me want to try.

How long does it take you? is it worth the effort/time? How much do you charge for your cards? individual or sets?
