Getting Started with Card Making

If you’ve never made cards before then you don’t know what you’re missing!  Making your own greeting cards is a wonderful hobby that you can enjoy either on your own or with family and friends.  I find that card making is becoming more and more popular as time goes by.  Once a novelty, hand made greeting cards are becoming more and more mainstream.

Why pay $5 or more for a card (and that’s considered cheap now-a-days) when you can make a card for less than $0.50?  Besides, cost-savings aside, in this era of instant messaging, emails and text, people really appreciate the fact that someone took the time to make them a card. It’s more personal, it’s more individualized and it really shows someone you care.  And guess what?  It’s also incredibly easy to make your own cards.  You don’t have to be creative and you don’t have to have a lot of time.  You also don’t need a whole lot of supplies.  You can start making cards with a few basic things, then add to your supplies as time goes on. So, now that you know all the reasons why you should start making your own cards, what next?
