(It has only taken a me months to post this.)
Last year, I received some really lovely birthday gifts and I wanted to send thank you notes that reflected my appreciation. I also wanted to use some new toys: a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (which I've since destroyed and need to replace) and a Fiskars punch that I got on clearance for only $2. There's a lot of layers on this card, but it is still flat enough to not to require extra postage, especially since I put a piece of cardstock over the front of the card when I mailed it.
I've always loved Basic Grey, but I find the patterns difficult to work with so I was happy to be able to use it on these cards. Plus, remember all that fiber we collected in multiple swaps, oh so many years ago? I was able to make a tiny dent in my collection.
