Easy Handmade Cards

Sorry, didn’t have time to crop this picture, I JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL CARD FOR ANY OCCASION, THE POSSIBLILITIES  CAN GO AS FAR AS YOU WANT THEM TO GO………JUST GATHER A PIECE OF CARD STOCK, SOME GLUE, AND SCRAPS OF JUST ABOUT ANY KIND, PAPER,VINTAGE PAPER,WRAPPING PAPER,PAPER FROM CARDS YOU WANT TO RECYCLE, LACE, TRIM, RIC-RAC,RIBBON, WHATEVER SCRAPS YOU HAVE ON HAND.

JUST FOLD A PIECE OF CARD STOCK IN HALF AND SCORE WELL. OPEN, AND DECORATE OUTSIDE FRONT, AND EVEN SOME OF THE INSIDE IF YOU WISH, GO FOR PEARLS, LACE, PRETTY PAPER FOR A BRIDAL GIFT, ANY COLOR COMBINATIONS YOU WANT, OR MAKE ANTIQUE LACE CARDS WITH VINTAGE BUTTONS. LIKE I SAID, IDEAS ARE EVERYWHERE, JUST MIX AND MATCH,UNTIL YOU GET THE LOOK YOU WANT AND THEN GLUE INTO PLACE.

EASY HANDMADE CARD

THESE ARE JUST AS PRETTY, IF NOT MORE SO, THAN CARDS THAT MAY COST YOU ANYWHERE FROM 4-6 DOLLARS IN A RETAIL SETTING.

YOU CAN EVEN MAKE THEM FOR KIDS FOR THIER BIRTHDAYS, OR FOR A SPECIAL PERSON FOR VALENTINES, MOTHER’S DAY, FATHER’S DAY, EASTER , ANNIVERSARY, OR FOR JUST BECAUSE!

THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO USE UP ALL YOUR SCRAPS THAT WERE JUST TOO PRETTY TO THROW AWAY,
