Okay, I really would love this book!!!!
Now I am new, so this is my second year of saving my cards. I threw them in the garbage before!!! ~shudder~



Great card.
I like to recycle as many Christmas cards as I can. I use various punches to make gift tags for the following year.

I save certain cards and others, I recycle and incorporate them in more updated cards.

Alice Turak

I save most cards for memories and recycling.


I save any handmade cards I receive indefinitely - commercial cards I keep for a few years and then give them (well, the fronts) to a local daycare for the kids to use.
Looks like a very cool book! Your project turned out great - I've put that die on my Christmas list. Thanks for the chance at the book!

I usually save my cards at least until the next holiday season rolls around; that way I can check that I have the updated addresses, new baby names, etc.
Then, when done, I either recycle them or donate to a nursing home.
Your handmade card idea looks really cool, nicely done!
Peace, Judi

i save all the cards we get. have a whole box of them that i go through to look for ideas for embellies to add to the cards i am making or to journal pages. i love pop-up cards. have tried some fairly complex ones. they take a lot of time but are so cool. the die would definitely make it faster.

Great card Stef! My project involved a deer too :-) That book looks really interesting- would love to win it. Yes I am card keeper too but need to do something with them now. Thanks- great post

I am really new to stamping (about 6 months) and haven't been saving previous cards (gasp!) Will start to now and will probably use for embellishments or recycle the cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book.


I really like how you set the die off-centered inside the card. I hadn't thought of that. Very nice.

And to answer the question about what I do with my old cards: I get mostly photo cards that I save so I am going to make Twist Cube 3D Christmas ornaments this year.
