Hello Everybody
Did you every think of using cards that you receive for holiday, birthday, mother day. and so on. They can save you money, because the cards are beautiful and they can be use for design. Have a nice day

Not a bad idea, if you're not concerned with archival quality. Many greeting cards are not "archival safe" and contain acids that will damage your scrapbook pages over time.

It's a shame to put effort in to creating a lovely scrapbook page, only to have it yellow, fade, and/or crumble after a few years.


Best to test the cards with a Ph pen first. Or use old greeting cards for other crafts, like creating gift tags or your own cards.

Or did you mean recycle the cards into new greetings cards? I made 92 Christmas cards from old Christmas cards before we took the decorations down. I was still in the festive mood - I just felt like it.
