This week's Midweek Throwdown is to create an Easter card. I won't be sending another box before that deadline, so I just made one card. It'll go in my box to hold for next year. I keep a box with dividers where I store cards after deadlines have passed. Often, I'll make a few cards close to the holiday because I'm inspired but I might not have recipients for all of them. Rather than send the cards late and force my shipper to store them, I keep them myself.
I used some really old paper that I'd cut to A2 size years ago. The cardstock pieces were all in the A2 pile or scrap pile as well.
