I am now very comfortable with the stash of cards I have set aside. My little stack of boxes is quite full!
I am sharing them by occasion, I guess, as the beast option. There are a few older ones that were all I had when I began this process, and if you spot them you will know how badly I needed a cardmaking session!
Happy Birthday: Men
Some of these could surely do for my gal pals in a pinch, but I think of these as more in the masculine realm:
I also have four more of the little star-squares, which I can stick on a cardfront in a few minutes, if the need arises. And I have these two older ones as well:
Happy Birthday: Women
I have a good sash of girlie birthday cards (what I generally need the most of) as well:
I have four more of the star squares as well! And these two – the blue one could go either way, depending on the choices I make for the final embellishments, flowers or plain words:
I feel any of the generic cards would also work for a birthday if need be:
Even the lone Congrats card would do in a real card emergency! Most of these are older one – the BOY card I made for the very old Best Of British scrapbooking contest book. Now that is going back some years…. The It’s All About YOU card was made using that odd stamping circle thing and the bikini cards are from a template I downloaded a very long time ago as well.
These should last me a good year, and if not I do still have a ton of scraps that I can use to make more. And although they are probably going to be a gift, I can’t ignore the note card set. Sorry to show it AGAIN – you must be sick of seeing it by now….
38 cards from this selection were from the A Card A Day project, nine old ones. Tomorrow I’ll share the rest.
