Default blank cards and envelopes

I have lots of these. How do you store yours?

I cut my cardstock for A2 cards and have these in a large envelope box. I have all my colors in there, so when I want to make a card, I can find the shade I want. It's so much easier to see what i have this way. A friend has hers scored, but I don't always use them for a card base, so want the cardstock available for die cutting. I keep just a few envelopes on hand in an old envelope box and replace as needed.

I use photo boxes for A2 envelopes. I ordered 2,000 from Heinrich a couple of years ago (still going through them!), and just stuffed about 4 photo boxes with them. For card bases, I generally score, cut, & fold several at a time. I have a clear plastic bin (I think one of the Fridge Binz line--something like this one) that is slightly wider. I also have several colored cardstock card fronts & layering panels (4x5.25") that I cut down. I made dividers out of cardstock that I laminated, for card fronts, layering panels, portrait card bases, & landscape card bases, and file everything behind their corresponding labeled divider.

all over the place. LOL I have a large basket that holds some (I once picked up a wedding invitation set at a great clearance price that makes great bases.) I have a narrow shoebox with a flip top lid that holds a ton of card bases I pre-make. It's not quite wide enough to include envelopes so those are stored (and a box of card bases and envelepes picked up from Hobby Lobby on clearance) on a wire shelf on the wall. Easier access than the basket for the other stuff.

I keep my bulk envelopes in their original boxes and take out a bunch to store in a three tiered desk organizer with my cellophane bags for my finished cards and also a couple of clear stamp packs that I use often. I hope this makes sense. (I have chemo brain and sometimes can't remember names of things.). For my card stock, I will cut down several colors and keep them in a plastic divided file under my desk. Some are scored and some are not. I keep them by ROYGBIV colors so if I am looking for a card base, I just look in the file. Also, I cut down 8 x 11 paper into quarters and keep them in a box under my desk. Again, If I am looking for a certain color to use, they are right there.
