Nautical theme male birthday card
As I mentioned in a recent post, I'm trying to use up more of the supplies that I have and not buy more. I confess, the longer something sits in my crafting room without me using it, the less likely I am to use it at all.
This really doesn't make sense. Something doesn't have to be new to be nice. I think we're all just so inundated with seeing new, that we forgot our old and retired supplies were once new, too. We loved them when we bought them, why not now?
Like this perfectly nice docrafts Ahoy There! mini decoupage medley pack used on this card. I wanted to make a card for my brother's birthday and was digging around in my stash when I came across it. Frankly, I had forgotten I had it (I'm sure you can relate). I think it turned out quite nice and am glad I was finally able to put it to good use.
