Several years ago I made a pact to NOT purchase any more cards to give, but to make them instead, using supplies that I already had anyway. Well, needless to say that this past chaotic year, I've purchased a few cards and even not given cards on the odd occassion.
When I was planning a birthday inspiration week on the Greatest View blog, I challenged myself to make nine birthday cards, one using each of the newest birthday badges.
I kept them quite simple, just used coordinating scraps and a few basic designs that I repeated.
So now my birthday card stash is looking a bit healthier . . . although I might just have a simple cardmaking afternoon again one day!
See all of the cards as well as plenty more inspiration from the amazing design team on the GV blog here.
