I decided to use a few of my favorite cards that my daughter has given her daddy over the years for Father's Day. Since the original cards had different textures and sizes, I started by scanning them. After they were scanned, I re-sized them and cut them out.
Next I printed out the photos I wanted to use, I chose two photos for my page. One from 1988 and one we took this past weekend for a "then and now" look. I printed them out using wallet size so they wouldn't cover too much of the background. Now all I had to do was put my layout together, add a few embellishments and my title.

Now I have a few of my favorite cards and great memories on one page without having to use the original cards and there's no bulk.
How do you keep or your cards, whether they are store bought or handmade? Do you recycle them, scrap them or just throw them away? Leave a comment and let me know.
