Make your own special card for a birthday, for Mother's Day, or make a greeting card for a special friend or a member of your family just to say, "Hi!".
I like card making ideas to be easy, quick but also to look special at the same time. They are the ideal gift to go with homemade gift basket ideas.
It's easy to buy a ready-make card or send an electronic card but somehow it's not the same. Whether you send or personally deliver a greeting card, it's nice to surprise friends with a handmade card. If they are like me, when I receive a handmade card I definitely keep it, and some times I put the handmade card into a frame and hang it on the wall.
Whether you make a greeting card or any other seasonal cards, you want them to be easy to make and also look nice.
The card you see above, I made for my mother for Mother's Day, but it can easily be made as a birthday card, to go with a birthday gift basket, a thank you card to go with a thank you gift basket, or a get well soon card to go with a get well soon gift basket.
Whether you are making birthday cards or other greeting cards, enjoy creating special handmade cards and create some beautiful gifts.
This card was simple to make, I only used three things: pink card-stock, fabric, and some iron-on adhesive which you can get from a fabric store.
How to make a greeting card? You have just made your first greeting card -- Hooray! That wasn't too difficult! Next is a matching gift tag.
This gift tag can be used with the card above or on its own. Just write your message on the back of the gift tag.
I made this gift tag using the same pink card-stock as the greeting card above.
To make this envelope I used patterned paper 12 inches square (30.5cm square) and I cut a template to the size of my greeting card.
It's important to make the address clearly visible on your envelope. Hand-write the address on a piece of white paper then cut it out, or write the address on your computer and print it onto some paper you can peel off and stick onto your envelope. I used a corner punch to make the corners look smooth.
