Hey friends, I think this question has come up before:
What to do with cards when the season is over? (I know it’s not ever really over, but you know what I mean.)

For mine, I have a book binding machine which I tried out with my 2020 cards, and I’m super happy with how it came out!

This is just 1 of 2 since they all didn’t fit in one book. I made them in 2 sizes, small and large, and will decorate and label them soon. This one is 9x6 inches.

I layered them with their envelope first (yes, I kept them) and then the card. I will decorate the cover with things that were added like confetti, stickers, etc.

Just wanted to share in case anyone is wondering the same thing.
That's a great idea. I've always kept cards, letters, etc. so I have a keepsake box that I put them in. I have letters from a pen pal I had as a teenager still.

Also Laura, I received your card today, loved it. I want to know if the art on the outside is a stamp or what?

Thank you Lady Arsenic and Lauralouthatswho for the amazing homemade cards and stickers! Love them!

Making a book with the cards is an amazing idea-I may need to try something like that if I ever get the time!

Stinkerbell and Frog - your hearse was amazing! Thank you for sharing! Have a great camping trip and stay dry.

Thank you, glad you liked it. I found the envelope on a calligraphy website (I’m not sure if it’s available anymore), and I printed off copies.

That’s too funny about the dog, true carb loaders!! The envelope was a template I found, I can’t take too much credit.

So it finally stopped raining here and thus I actually stopped and checked my mailbox tonight. Spooky surprises were awaiting me inside, and it was not just the occasional small spider that likes to make a home in my mailbox. I had got 4 Halloween cards sometime in the past few days. Here are the ones that arrived from some lovely Halloween forum people!

Holly Haunter & Red Flyer - thanks for the cool steampunk gourd. I think I should maybe make one of these kinds of guys to add to my pumpkin patch.
Lady Arsenic - thank you for my personalized tombstone. I may need one of those sooner than I think. ;-)
Laurlouthatswho - thank you for the chuckle you gave me when I opened your creative card. I needed that after another stressful day at work. (also love the print on the envelope)
Araniella - thank you for your Halloween greetings again this year. I've always loved those old Universal monsters ever since I was a little kid.

Can't wait to see what else arrives in my mailbox and everyone else's as well.
