Default Christmas cards

You can pitch the cards and use the envelopes.
I would choose my cards according to how much of the card I could recycle for the next year, possible toppers to glitter up, gold or glittery borders to use again. It might be possible to use the entire card by putting a wrapper on it as a base for your own design. Each year, I go through all the cards received, save all the beautiful hand made for posterity, and then decide what I can reuse before putting what is left in the recycling.
