My paper collection is somewhat modest when compared to my fabric collection, but don’t let it fool you. Paper is slim and it stacks nice, and the ‘quantity’ I possess does not take up space.
In that pile of paper is the power to create unique, wonderful, personal CARDS! I love cards! I make them like crazy and send them out like a madwoman. Don’t you love getting REAL mail? The kind that comes in your big box at the end of the driveway. Where you touch the envelope and wonder what is inside?
So what is my Secret? My Top Tip?
Buying BLANKS! Yes indeed.. start with a package of card blanks and envelopes that fit the blank. You will be creating personal and heartfelt cards in no time.
Here is the step by step… it’s easy!
Just a few things are needed, Card blanks, envelopes, some paper, rub-on phrases.. maybe a few stickers! Of course you can use a lot more… maybe next time!
Audition 2 pieces of paper. I offset mine beause I’m crazy like that.
Trim the papers to fit your card. Now you’ll need a great adhesive. I like good glue sticks, sticky dots, and double sided runner tapes. Try a few to see what works for you
When I glue paper to paper I spread the glue across the whole back. If using a double sided tape I’d put it just along the edges.
Take your rub-on, or sticker, for the note inside. You can find great sayings online. GreetingCardMessages.com has many to get you started, hand write the message or type into your computer and print it out with nifty fonts.
The final inside and outside of the card!
Until next week, go make something!
