Of course, there were occasions and I needed cards. My son and his wife's anniversary, a couple of birthdays, a baby girl, and thank you. I cannot make the same card twice- it is some kind of sickness I have. These used heavy wt interfacing, the Crafted Applique mod podge technique, and batik scraps. Just a little sewing for cohesion of design. Then double stick tape to cardstock. I already need more.
