I made the Back to School card and it works great! I added in several more elements on the front instead of using wallpaper and it didn't hamper the card workings. For the birthday cards, I plan to mix and match the inside banners and maybe have an item on the front as well as one on the back. Otherwise, there's lots of room on the back for a poem or other message. If you're rushed for time, these impress without a lot of extra work.
