The Ladies on MSE have set this weeks challenge for a credit crunch card. The idea is to see if you can make a lovely card with little expense being involved then work out your costs. I have enjoyed this challenge because it was one I could actually get into for a change where as I sometimes miss the challenges as I feel my cards are rubbish in comparison to the ladies on the thread.
Card costs: Approx 3p for the card (I cheated as I will use it for FIL's birthday as I am doing him a gardening hamper.) card - approx 1p (from huge pack at bargain price!) Ink from printer - approx 2p Patterned paper (flowers etc) free with magazine I got for mothers day. I printed all the solid colours then cut them out in the right shapes. We have a continuous ink supply so it makes things like that unbelievably cheap!
