Frame Old Greeting Cards

If you’re one of those sentimental folks and have kept old greeting cards from ages ago, and you can still recall the last time you received a holiday greeting card that was not done online, then it’s time to get those cards out of your old boxes and place them in a frame! Aside from making it a nice wall decor, you’ll be able to preserve those memorable greeting cards.
