I am still catching my breath from the 72 birthday cards I made for giveaways at a charity event my daughter was involved with.
I kept them very, very simple in design and tried very hard to use up some VOS (very old stash) in the creating of them. I seemed to have a plethora of embellishments suitable for toddler cards and also cards for school age children. Mostly leftovers from previous card making forays, and lots from the many garage sales I have attended each summer at my local papercraft store parking lot. Most of those garage sale embellies were 10 cents to 25 cents for a package of four items or more, so these were very economical cards to make!
I made up 24 sets of 3 cards each...One adult, one girl and one boy. It was great fun and although they may be very simple in design, I am still proud of them. I packaged them up three at a time, in large size Avery Elle envelopes. I could have easily slid in a fourth or maybe even a fifth card as their was lots of room...but sadly my fingers did not fly fast enough to finish more.
I forgot to take photos as I made them so you have to settle for rather poor photos of some the 3 packs already in their Avery Elle envelopes...in other words, photos with a bit of glare. You will have to imagine the middle card as it is hidden...
Each had a verse and I decorated the envelopes to match. I mostly used a balloon on the front of each envelope, coloured with pencil crayons and blended with gamsol to match the cards.
