How to Get Started In Card Making

Card Making 101

When was the last time you needed a card to give or send to someone? 

My guess is that just about every month, you need a card for a birthday, anniversary, thank you, or to send sympathy.

Why not give card making a try?  It's really awesome to be able to start and finish a crafting project in a few minutes time.  It's a win-win!  Fun for you and provides a solution.

So to get started?

First, start with a kit that will take the guesswork out of the process.    Here's an example!

Stampin' Up! Happenings Simply Created Card Kit

With this kit, you can make 15 cards in just minutes.  The measuring and cutting is all done for you!

Coordinates with the Says It All Stamp Set.



Now all you'll need is an ink pad and some adhesive...

Smoky Slate Ink Pad

This is a neutral color that coordinates with this kit.

Mini Glue Dots

Great adhesive to begin with because it will hold your paper in place AND your embellishments (buttons, etc.)

Here are some cards that I created with this kit.
