WFMW: 20 cent STYLISH greeting cards

1. Go to Michael's. Bring $9.99 plus tax.

2. Buy this.




3. Never be without a greeting card again. Need a closeup?


Here are the details:

-- There are 50 cards in the box. Those who know me know my extremely limited math skills, but I believe at $9.99 for the box, that's a mere 20 cents per card.

-- Envelopes are included.

-- The cards are textured with a matte finish. I think this makes them look "richer." Since they are from the crafty-craft store, I'm sure they can be embellished, stamped, punched, and whatever other craft wizardry you people do who have more time (and desire) on your hands than me.

-- The cards are blank inside so get thee some creativity and write your sentiment from the heart. No one ever reads the preprinted notes anyway!

-- I've not had an occasion yet that one of these cards didn't fit: birthday, graduations, new baby, etc. And there are designs that are masculine, as well.

-- If you are reading this and you receive one of these cards from me, you now know how excited I am to be sending you a card AND saving money.

If you use one of the 40% or 50% off coupons, they would be even cheaper!

I'm going to keep my eyes open for one of those--and use the 40% coupon like Julie suggests! I never thought of having a box of cards around that I can use for any occasion. Smart idea!

Found your site through the WFMW. Great idea - these are super cute!!! Maybe I will actually get cards to people now.

I had bought the plain version of those cards with the intention of personalizing them. Since I haven't really done that this is a great alternative!

That is a great idea--I've never seen those before.
