A couple of years back, I pre-made card bases out of the colors I wasn't using so much. I almost always use a separate panel for the front of my cards and line the inside, so this was a perfect solution for me.

I get almost all of my cardstock from PTI and pretty much have all of their colors. But what I started doing was buy the smallest pack (12 sheets/$3) instead of the largest packs (50 sheets/$9). For my favorite most-used colors, I still buy the large packs.

My downfall was when they clearanced all their patterned paper a couple of years ago for $1/pack. But I'm using it. I ordered some of the quilt block dies from Gina Marie, and I'm going to town making sets of quilted cards as gifts.
