Happy World Card Making Day.
Sending cards I think is something all of us have done, mostly on special occasions, however what about at other times? World card making day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart. Sending people we love a card says so much as they can touch it, feel it, they see it regularly while it is sitting on the mantelpiece, its there as a constant reminder that you care for them.
Unfortunately with the advancement of modern technology this art of sending cards is dying out, with people opting for a quick text or e-mail, and there is nothing wrong with that, however ask yourself how do you feel when you have been sent a physical card? Feels good doesn’t it, so why not pass that feeling on by sending cards to others.
Have you thought about making your own cards?
The only limit to making cards is your own imagination, so let your creativity fly and enjoy sending out personalised cards to your friends and family.
Sounds good, but not sure where to start – no worries lets break it down:
What Supplies do you need to make cards?
The amount of card making supplies out there can maybe make us feel a little overwhelmed as to where to start. Surprisingly we need very little. Some blank cards, some glue, a few images (whether these be from a card making kit, or images you have just cut out of a magazine)
You have your supplies but you need a bit of inspiration
