1.) Pay attention to weight. You don’t want to make your cards too heavy and end up paying more than standard postage for them. I bought a box of A2 envelopes and keep all my cards small enough to fit in there. The size limitation helps limit the card’s weight as well.
2.) I try to use as much of the original card as possible. You can break apart envelopes and remove the decorative lining. And in cards with a lot of writing on them, you can always cut around the words to get nice borders.
4.) If you’re reusing the thinner invitations that feel pulpy, Elmer’s glue will show through most of them, and sometimes soak through the thin paper too.
