MSE 'Thrifty Card' Challenge


There's a challenge every two weeks over on MoneySavingExpert, the latest challenge being to create a 'thrifty' card. Apologies for the wonky pic - I'm useless with cameras, lol. The cost of this card worked out at 6 pence (for the card blank and envelope) - I do feel that I cheated somewhat as the backing papers, sticky ribbon and small flower embellishment were a gift from another MSE regular (thanks Mandy!). The large double-layer flower was cut by hand, using a stencil for the shape. Of course, no sentiment ;) When I decide I need to use the card I may add one, depending on the occasion.
