Card Making for Beginners (Or Anyone Needing A Quick Pretty Card Idea)
Card making should not be hard or overwhelming. Watch how to keep it simple and then step it up a bit if you want to.
How do you make a simple paper card?
I was so excited when I saw the Sale-a-bration brochure and that there were coordinating dies to go with this stamp set. When I originally planned these cards to share with you, I did not know about the dies. Now, you can still make a simple card, but you can add dimension and texture.
Card Making for Beginners: What You Need To Start
Stamps, ink and paper go along way when it comes to card making. The first card uses just that for some quick and easy cards. You can stamp up a whole set in no time to have ready to pop in the mail to family and friends.
These first cards simply use the Note Cards & Envelopes. Easy peasy! Simply use any color and change the greetings to make cards for different occasions.
Add a Couple Card Stock Layers
It is so easy to step up your cards a bit by just adding a couple of layers of cardstock. Same basic layout, just an extra touch.
- Note Card & Envelopes
- Basic White: 4 1/2″ x 3″
- Basic Black: 4 5/8″ x 3 1/8″
And then with just a few added supplies, look at this gorgeous card you can make.
- Basic White Thick: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
- Crumb Cake: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
- Basic Black: 3 5/8″ x 4 5/8″
