I am a big fan of Stampin’ Up!’s Forget-Me-Not-Keeper, a snap-together plastic card organizer that was discontinued a few years ago. I have two that I use to organize cards by category, but when I make a card specifically for someone’s birthday, for example, I use something different.
This Little Market Longaberger basket holds six sturdy dividers that originally came in a folder; I cut them down to size. Behind each one, I put the card in the addressed envelope. If I’m not going to include a little note or check, I’ll seal the envelope. Where the postage stamp will be, I pencil in the date the card should be mailed.
When I’m on top of things, I will make cards several months ahead. (I made card for a June birthday last night!) Occasionally when a recipient tells me they love the design of their card, I can’t even remember what it looked like!
I thought I’d share what works for me. What do you do to get your cards out on time?
