I have a ton of Designer series paper that has retired and I was unsure what to do with it as I cut all my packs into 6 x 6 squares. Whilst doing some project filing in my resources I came across a card that uses a 6 x 6 piece of DSP. Jackpot I thought I could make a pile of cards for those occassions where you get short for time and use them as the need arises.
I usually make a card for the occassion as I think its nice to have a card made especially for each recipient rather than grab any old card that you happen to have lying around.
I also try and use colours that I know the person favours. I sat down and made 8 of these cards yesterday. One was for my parents 50th wedding annniversary next weekend along with a little gift for them. The rule was no gifts but sorry Mum and Dad 50 years is too long not to celebrate with a gift. I can't post what I sent as Mum and Dad might find out before it arrives in the letterbox at he end of the week. I even used retired DSP to wrap the individual gifts and grosgrain ribbon the tie it up with.
Here is the inside of the card. The card measures 3.5 inches aquare
