How to Make a Congratulations Card, Envelope and Gift Tag using Your Computer. congrats greeting card.Make a Congratulations Card Design Using Your Computer.

How To Make a Congratulations Card

To make a congratulations card idea, start with the envelope. The envelope was one of those envelopes without a card lying around the house, so I put it to good use.

By changing the color of the blue paper to a pink, or pale green you can make it suitable for a male friend, female friend, for a couple getting married, or a baby.

Make a Congratulations Card Method:

  1. Measure the envelope and cut a piece of white cardstock, 1/4 inch (0.6cm) smaller (double the width of the card). When the card is folded in half it should be 1/4 inch smaller than the envelope. This will make an easy fit.
  2. Cut some blue cardstock, 1/4 inch (0.6cm) smaller than the white card.
  3. Print any picture from your computer and place it on the back, in the middle of the blue paper and draw around the picture.
  4. Cut a square 1/4 inch (0.6cm) smaller than the square I drew on the blue paper. Once that's done, place the blue paper on top of the picture to see how it looks, making sure the picture is centered. Then glue it together. 
  5. Glue the blue card to the white card making sure there is an even space all around the card.
  6. For the four corners, use glitter photo corner stickers. I think it finishes the card off nicely

How To Make a Congratulations Gift Tag

This matching gift tag is made in much the same way as the card above. It can be used on its own or as part of the card.

  1. Cut a piece of white and blue cardstock measuring 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches (7.6cm by 6.4cm).
  2. Print the same picture as above but smaller.
  3. Cut out a square, the same as above but using white paper and the blue card as backing for the gift tag. Don't forget to write a message!
  4. Make sure the picture is center and then glue everything together. 
  5. Punch a hole with a hole puncher and thread a piece of blue ribbon through the hole.

How To Decorate a Ready Made Envelope

You will not look at envelopes the same way again! We all have odd envelopes lying around the house collecting dust. This ordinary envelope is transformed to match the card above, just by gluing a few things to the front.

This envelope has three, even smaller pictures than the gift tag, all printed off my computer. Glue them to three corners of the envelope. The other corner is where the stamp goes.

Now you know how easy it is to make great greeting cards yourself. Next time you can't find that special card you like for that special celebration, try making your own special card, they're the ideal partner for your homemade gift basket ideas. It's fun and easy to do, so give it a go and enjoy card making. See you again soon.
