I was in the shopping plaza with a Marshall's store not long ago and, of course, I had to pop in to check and see if there were any crafting bargains. Over the years I have found many unexpected surprises in the stationery section. They often have Martha Stewart items and several brands of paper stacks.
I spotted this box of cards and envelopes from My Mind's Eye. There are fifty cards, five each of ten designs, in the box.
The price was an extremely affordable $5.99 - regular Marshall's price and not marked down yet.
At $5.99 for 50 cards and envelopes, the cost per card and envelope set is 12 cents. The envelopes I usually buy at Staples are $11.49 for 100 - so this seems like getting the cards for free!
The cards are printed on both sides - I considered these the front sides. The cardstock is a nice weight and the inside of the card is a coordinating color.
The backs of the cards are mostly more subdued solids with a few exceptions.
I've been making some cards using these handy bases. It's pretty simple to add a few cuts, some bling and a sentiment. I'll share the details on this design tomorrow.
If you are on the email feed, there are probably two posts on this email. I am on "summer hours" and have been busy sorting out a lot of things that I need to do before I go to see my Dad again.
Thanks for all of the interesting feedback about the Cricut vs. Cameo (or other machines) decision. I am holding on to most of my Cricut items for now and do continue to use them - but not as frequently as in the past. I have some cartridges that I have never opened that I might sell (of course as soon as I would sell one, I would find a use for it!).
