Greeting cards are very pricey. Some people drop a good $3.00-$4.00, sometimes even $5.00 if it sings, on greeting cards. The fancier and the bigger, the more you pay. You can however, find the new 44 cent or 99 cent cards these days, but you do get what you pay for. They still most likely end up in the trash.
Why not save money on greeting cards and buy blank cards in bulk? A few cute stickers or embellishments here and there and you have the perfect little card for any occasion. If you are into scrapbooking, this works out even better for you. You have all of the materials you need to put a pretty design on your cards. Cute embellishments, ribbon, raised stickers, stamps...if you have it, why not make your own cards? And, isn't it more special to receive a homemade card, than a card bought from the store with a message that someone else came up with?
