Every time I receive a handmade card, I think, “Who has time for that?” Well, I just made a homemade card in less than 10 minutes. Here’s what I did…
I like to save the front of interesting greeting cards to reuse. I cut the front half of cards I want to reuse, and store them in a bag. I usually throw out the half that contains the writing portion, unless I want to keep it for sentimental reasons. It is a really fast way to make a personalized greeting card that looks like you spent a lot more time on than you actually did. It is kind of cheating, but it always makes it a bit more personalized a store bought card.
On the outside of the card, I glued the recycled front of a card I received for my wedding (almost 6 years ago now), and glued it to a piece of textured cardstock from my scrapbooking supplies.
On the inside left, I glued a portion of their wedding invitation that included their names, time, and location of their wedding. (Not pictured for privacy reasons)
On the inside right, I included a space to write a personalized message for the bride and groom. I used a piece of white card stock to keep it simple and clean.
So, there you go…an idea for you to reuse something old and to create something new and personalized in a quick way!
